This morning.

I know you sometimes post these things. Someone cycling in the opposite direction to me on the Grand Canal cycleway this morning dropped their keys (above). I’m sure they’d like to be reunited with them. They’re in Kevin Street. Garda Station….

These are my keys Thanks a million for posting this, and for sharing on twitter – that’s how I found the article. I picked them up from the Garda station just now. I don’t think I’d have been reunited with them only for this article, so thanks!


Have you seen this handbag?

I’m hoping you can help us out. My sister’s handbag was stolen last night (Sunday, October 9) from Busáras Station, [Store Street, Dublin 1] at around 10:30pm.

While the handbag and most contents can be replaced there’s one thing that cannot-there was a large pink plastic folder in the bag containing hundreds of photos of our grandparents, parents and all my siblings and me growing up-in particular some of our late mother.

Our father’s 65th birthday is coming up and we were trying to put something together with the photos to mark it. All the photos are originals and hadn’t been digitally copied yet so it’s quite upsetting.

I’m hoping you can ask readers to keep an eye out in the vicinity of Busáras for the handbag (above) and bright pink folder with all the photos. It would mean so much to us to get them back. The bag also contained some money, two asthma inhalers, earphones and a bright pink hot water bottle so very random contents!!

Amazingly enough a friend found about ten of our photos this morning along with the folder but most are gone and the photos were all wet but hopefully retrievable.Our friend passed the street coming from Marlborough Quay into Hawkins Street-at the corner there are two phone booths and this is where she saw the photos laying around and picked them up. I’m hoping someone else spotted the photos earlier and took them.

Fia is a female adult Boxer who was  last seen in Ballinascorney, Dublin 24 walking in the forest last night. A group of friends and family have been out searching all day with no luck. We’ll be back out again tomorrow but in the meantime we’re trying to share the word as much as possible. Fia is microchipped and she should have her lead and collar on. Any information please call 01-4994700 or email lost@dspca.ie Thank you.

I was outside the big Centra in Stoneybatter earlier on today at about 12pm and I overheard some lad trying to make a quick sale on a bike. The potential buyer asked him where he got it, to which he replied ‘on the southside’.

He was trying to flog it for €50.

From what I could see, and after doing some research online, I would say it’s a black Carerra ‘Vengeance’ with neon blue text and trim, a little battered, but still in good condition.

Maybe Centra could help out with some security footage?


Earlier: Busted

Maybe you can help. I saw this bloke (above) robbing the bike he’s with at City Hall [Dublin 2].. I took the bike off him and have it somewhere safe for the owner. I don’t know who the owner is but if they could get in touch I will give them all the info….




The bike in question at a safe location this morning. Recognise it?

I was walking to work this morning and noticed a purse lying behind the railings on Great Strand Street [Dublin 1]. There are quite a few cards in the wallet and one sticking out that very clearly look like an IADT [Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology] student card… Maybe you can help the owner find it. I could also see the top of a driver’s license. I couldn’t reach it as it is behind locked railing but I’m sure the owner could reach it somehow. Approx location here.


UPDATE: Owner located (see comments)

Result, in fairness.

I understand you don’t normally do this but my beautiful baby was lifted from a locked bike shed at work St. Mary’s Place, Dublin 7. They bust open the locked shed :(

It’s a black and red “LaPierre Raid FX full-sus downhill racing MTB” and in perfect nick. Valued at just over a €1,000.

Why am I cycling a bike like that to work…. there’s a lock up at work, it’s a joy to ride, and a joy I hate to miss when it’s not raining, dragging the last out of the fair weather…
