This day 38 years ago – 8 February 1983 – Derby-winning racehorse Shergar was kidnapped from Ballymany Stud Farm, Co Kildare.
A ransom of £2 million was demanded.
In 2018, Kieran Conway, a former member of the Provisional IRA, claimed the group had been behind the abduction. pic.twitter.com/5XaWOfG0FM
