After returning to the city, the 27-year-old left the La Mirage nightclub in Parnell Street at around 2:15am. She was reportedly last seen by a taxi driver, who contacted investigators to say he believes he picked her up on Westmoreland Street in the city centre at about 3.30am. The driver told investigators that Antoinette was with two men in their early 20s at the time he picked her up, and that he dropped the three off near the Yellow House pub in Rathfarnham. He said the three had been in Abrakebabra on Westmoreland Street before getting into his taxi, and that they had been discussing going to a house party in Rathfarnham when they were travelling in the car. On April 3, 1988, Mrs Smith's body was discovered dumped in a drain by a turf-cutters’ road on Glendoo Mountain, outside Enniskerry, and it was found that she had been strangled. But Gardai say they are not certain it was Mrs Smith and are asking those who were in the taxi to come forward, and the case remains a mystery to investigators.

The devastated daughters of murdered Antoinette Smith have claimed that their mother knew her barbaric killer.

Antoinette ‘Angie’ Smith, 27, was last seen at around 2.30am on O’Connell Street in Dublin on March 12, 1987.

The mum-of-two from Clondalkin, west Dublin, had been with pals on a night out after attending a David Bowie concert at Slane Castle, Co Meath.

Her body was found dumped in an isolated drain on a turf-cutters road at Glendoo Mountain, outside Enniskerry in Wicklow, almost a year later on April 3, 1988.

Speaking on Friday at Bray Garda Station on the 32nd anniversary of their mum’s disappearance, her daughters Lisa and Rachel have urged anyone with information to come forward so that they can get justice for Angie.

Rachel, the younger of the two sisters said: “I think that the person is known to her. There’s no way in her right mind that she would go up the Wicklow Mountains at that time.

“I strongly believe that she knew her attacker. It could have been a family member or a friend, or a neighbour. Things might have gotten out of hand with people drinking and things didn’t go to plan.

“This person has left two young kids to grow up without a mother because they didn’t get their wicked way.

"It’s just horrendous the way she was found. You wouldn’t leave a dog in that way.”

Rachel says that she believes people have withheld information with regards to what happened to her mum on the night she was killed.

She added: “We’re going to keep fighting no matter how long it takes. We’re here on the 32nd anniversary to appeal to anyone’s guilty nature.

“Relationships break down. Someone has to know something. There is someone out there withholding information.

"Do the right thing and come forward so we can put this behind us and let her rest in peace.”

Lisa says that whoever killed her mum ‘planned’ the attack and never wanted her body to be discovered.

She said: “It was really hard to see where she met her end but thankfully we’re one of the lucky families in a sense that we got to bring her home and we have a resting place.”

Lisa says that she and Rachel were ‘robbed’ of precious memories with their beloved mum but says that they take comfort from hearing stories told by friends and loved ones of Angie.

She said: “We were both very young, I would have been seven and Rachel would have been four. It was very traumatic growing up without her.

"It’s a big part of who we are as people, but ultimately, we want justice for our mam so that she can rest in peace.

“My mam was a typical fun-loving young mum, into her fashion into her music.

"From the stories her friends told us – obviously we’re limited in the stories we have because we were both so young, but it’s lovely when her friends tell us ‘you’re just like your mam’.

“It’s great for us because we don’t have that many memories. Sometimes when we hear stories I wonder ‘oh what would it be on a night out with my mam’. We’ll never know, so we’re always going ‘what if’ the what ifs are the hardest on days like today.”
