Donegal County Council is to hear a call today for a public inquiry into the Mary Boyle disappearance case.
A motion has been put before the council by Independent Councillor Frank McBrearty Jnr on the issue.
The move will be the latest in recent days which brings increased pressure for a full new investigation into the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the 6 year old near Cashelard outside Ballyshannon in 1977.
A public march in support of Mary and her family took place in Ballyshannon on Saturday afternoon last and was attended by a large crowd of people.
Organiser Naomi Brady said she was prompted to support the family after watching a You Tube video ‘Mary Boyle The Untold Story’ about the case of the missing schoolgirl.
The Garda Cold Case team have also confirmed that they have reignited their file on the Mary Boyle case and that officers will carry out fresh investigations within the coming months.
A search of lands which took place near Cashelard at the request of the Boyle family on Friday last proved inconclusive.
