On Cape Clear Island, the gardai say they met in 1995, but they’re currently looking into that claim.

Photo evidence taken at a festival near Cork, the Gardai have begun looking into his allegation that the two have never met.

Expert cold-case detectives in Dublin have finished their preliminary review, according to reports.

Garda Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll will be notified of the incident. He will then decide whether or not a new investigation is necessary.

According to the Irish Sun, Bailey had no remark to make on the fresh claims when they contacted him.

A statement from Schull resident Mark McCarthy, made on October 3, 1997, was discovered by Pearse Street gardai working on a cold case.

“I’ve known Ian Bailey for five years now,” he says. He is a British journalist. He is also a poet in his 40s.

The last time I saw him on the RTÉ news, he said that he had never met the woman, and I’m referring to Sophie Du Plantier here.”

“This seemed odd to me because I had attended a storytelling festival at Cape Clear in the summer of 1995. Ian Bailey and Sophie du Plantier, a French woman, were also present.

At the time, I was unaware of Sophie du Plantier, but when I saw her images in the press and on television, I recognized her.

The identical woman who was at the festival that summer was, without a doubt, this woman.

During the event, I noticed her chatting with Ian Bailey. However, it was an occasion where everyone chatted to everyone else, so I’m not sure what they were saying.

In December 1996, a murderer struck at the Schull vacation property of Ms. Toscan du Plantier.

Her murder has never been prosecuted, and no one has ever been charged. In 2019, a French court found Ian Bailey guilty of her murder in absentia, despite the fact that he had consistently denied any wrongdoing.
