The mum, who worked at textile and home electrical firm MPL Ltd in Maxted Road, Hemel Hempstead, was discovered dead by her husband when he went to look for her after she failed to return home.

The accident is believed to have happened between 3pm and 4pm on Sunday, October 4 on the A414 near the junction with Potters Crouch Lane, St Albans.

Sinead’s black Renault Clio was found overturned in a ditch to the side of the road.

At the time of the tragedy, Sinead’s husband Nathan said: “Sinead was a gorgeous, caring, and trustworthy person, whilst also being a truly independent woman who just enjoyed having fun, and whose smile and laughter was infectious with anyone she came across.

“She was the most fantastic and dedicated mum to our beautiful daughter Orla Rose, for whom I am eternally grateful for and I vow that Orla Rose will grow up knowing her mummy.

“I am so proud and honoured that although Sinead and I were together for almost 7 years, I was able to call her my wife for 106 days.

“Sinead will always be a part of me and she has made me a better person just for knowing her. There is now a massive hole in our family due to Sinead leaving us that will never be filled. However, neither I, nor Orla Rose, will ever forget her. We will continue to love her forever and always.”

Sgt Richard Barker said the investigation is still ongoing.

“I would like to take this opportunity to renew the appeal for witnesses. I’d urge anyone who may have witnessed what happened to make contact with police.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the collision investigation unit via the Herts Police non-emergency number 101.
