Relic Of St Laurence O’Toole Stolen (RTE)

St Laurence’s skull was brought to England in 1442 by a nobleman named Sir Rowland Standish  who had fought at Agincourt. The bones were interred at the parish church of Chorley in England, now named St. Laurence’s. The bones disappeared in the Reformation under Henry VIII’s rule. His heart was preserved in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, until March 3rd 2012 when it was stolen. The Dean of Christ Church Cathedral and the diocese of Dublin and Glendalough, the Most Reverend Dermot Dunne stated “I am devastated that one of the treasured artifacts of the cathedral is stolen”
