Tina remembered at vigils

Heartfelt tributes to murdered Cork woman Tina Satchwell continue to pour in as her husband Richard Satchwell remains in garda custody charged with her murder.

Mr Satchwell, 57, was charged with his wife’s murder after skeletal remains were found at their home in Youghal last week.

He appeared before a special sitting of Cashel District Court last Saturday morning.

Ms Satchwell, nee Dingavan, was reported missing by her husband on 24 March 2017. She was 45 at the time of her disappearance.

In March of this year on the sixth anniversary of her disappearance, gardaí issued a renewed appeal for information. The case was upgraded to murder last week, and a search was carried out on a premises on Grattan Street in Youghal town.

It is understood Ms Satchwell’s remains were discovered buried underneath a staircase in her former home.

On Monday, over 500 people attended a candlelit vigil for Ms Satchwell in her home town of Fermoy. A minute of silence was observed at the vigil which was attended by members of the Dingivan family. A portrait of Tina was displayed at the vigil and a poem was recited.

Close to 200 people had attended a previous vigil held in Youghal last Saturday at which parish priest Canon Bill Bermingham offered prayers and words of comfort to Ms Satchwell’s loved ones.

She leaves behind four sisters and three brothers.
