And a couple of plastic stars on the spokes  Thank you…

I know you don’t normally do this but I’m wondering if you can help reunite me with my skateboard.

I left it/ last saw it on the 11am train from Dun Laoghaire [County Dublin] to Greystones [County Wicklow] but it is now missing.

it’s is a custom-made one-off Penneyboard. There is only one of this board in existence and it looks like an Irish flag.

I got it because I don’t like cycling or walking. Can the readers of broadsheet help reunite me with the extension of my feet?




Nice one Harry, in fairness.

I know you don’t normally do this but I lost my wedding ring (above arrowed) Christmas Day while swimming on Greystones Beach [Greystones, County Wicklow] but by any small chance of that it’s now not pirate treasure at the the bottom of the Irish Sea and somebody found it could they drop a comment and let us know thanks.



Left in a ‘pick-up’ taxi.

Joe Maher, guitarist in The Marionnnes, writes:

I left my brown Fender Telecaster Modern Player (above in foreground) behind in a taxi last night. In a guitar bag full of pedals amounting to around a grand’s worth.

I hailed the driver on South Circular Road [Dublin 8] at around 2.30 and he brought me to North Brunswick Street [Dublin 7] outside the Richmond apartments where I live. I left without thinking of it because im an idiot. No number no car type. :( The driver was of African descent that’s pretty much all I know…


UPDATE: Possible guitar sighting (see comments).

I know you don’t usually do this. But I found a sum of money at Ranelagh Station at around nine this morning. It’s the time of year where that might really matter to someone.

Any chance you might post this and put me in touch with anyone who can give the correct details of the amount and where I found it….

Broadsheet@broadsheet.ie, anyone?
