Tag Archives: We Don’t Normally Do This

I know you don’t normally do this but my fiancé’s two bikes were stolen from a storeroom in his office in Sandyford [Dublin 18]. The theft occurred in the last week. One of the bikes is a Paganini men’s racer (top right), red and yellow with brown bar tap and chrome forks.
The other is an Affinity fixed gear bike , we don’t have a pic so (above) is a picture of the same model except the bike is dark grey in colour with white straight bars, a black brooks saddle and red tyres. Any help much appreciated. Thank you


GraceM card(1)

Lost her cards.

No disgrace.

Helen writes:

This morning a bank card and other important cards belonging to ‘Grace’ were found on Arkle Road, Sandyford Dublin 18.
We think the owner was heading in the direction of the Luas. They were handed into reception at Millbank House on Arkle Road (opposite Microsoft). Perhaps the owner will see this and she can come in and collect them?

I found this student Leap card on the corner of Benburb street and Blackhall Place. As the Students’ Union is probably closed could you post the picture? Will be handing it in to the Bridewell Garda station at the end of the day if no one contacts me

Update: Cian located. Thanks all

My Lapierre bike was taken between 6.20pm and 7.45pm outside Super Valu in Ranelagh {Dublin 6] lastFriday [April 24] Above is what it should look like, however what is different is my bike had red writing on the saddle, not blue. The lock and one tyre was left behind, so the bike should have one Michelin Dynamic tyre but presumably the thief will add another similar one….


FOUND in Dublin.

This doesn’t normally happen.

I found a bike outside my house which looked like it had been robbed. You can see a bend in the frame where the lock would have been pulled off. It’s an old bike but I would say someone’s missing it, she looks like she’s cared for. Maybe one of your readers is missing their ride?



His ‘n’ her bicycles.

These two bikes –  a Cube Agree GTC racer (left) and a Dawes duchess (right) were taken from Loretto Abbey apartments Rathfarnham [Co Dublin], from an underground carpark (that needs a fob), a locked bike shed with 2 good locks attached – has made me very sceptical of everyone.   I have seen very little of those Cubes on the road so if I do see anyone cycle one I will stop them and ask – I am sure they wouldn’t mind as I would do the same for someone in the same boat…


Meadhbh ring

Niamh Sherlock at the Downs Syndrome Centre writes:

A wonderful Mum who is involved with the centre and who is doing the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon for us was out training yesterday and lost her engagement and wedding ring.
The route she ran was along Collins Avenue, Swords Road, Griffith Avenue and Killester [Dublin]. As you can imagine she is devastated and hoping for a miracle.
We know it’s a long shot but perhaps one of your readers may live in the area and happen upon them. If anyone finds them they can contact Niamh in The Down Syndrome Centre on 01 661 8000 and she will pass the details on.
