Tag Archives: We Don’t Normally Do This


Last Monday, we posted about an acoustic guitar which had been found three days earlier at Hatch Lane, Dublin 2.

Delighted, strumming Broadsheet reader Patrick messaged that his acoustic guitar was mislaid in the same vicinity at the same time.

However, it was a different acoustic guitar.

The emergence of an acoustic guitar stealing crew operating in the area or merely a coincidence, we may never know.

Either way, Patrick left a Sigma 00 vintage Sunburst (as above) on “the boot of a car behind mine when I was putting my kids in and forgot about it and when I went back it was gone”.

He would dearly like it back.

Can you help?

Any excuse

Hey you, forgetful guitarist! Why did you leave your acoustic guitar in Hatch Lane, Dublin 2 last Friday (March 8) between 3.50pm and 4.30pm?

Don’t worry. It’s being looked after (and has new strings on now).

Get in touch [Broadsheet@broadsheet.ie) with the make and description and I’ll get it back to you…


This morning.

Found a lovely, distinctive bike (a De Rosa) with kid’s seat, apparently abandoned (unlocked for 2 days) in the Tenters area of Dublin 8. Possibly stolen and would love to reunite with owner. cc @dublincycling

Hey Bike lovers, My black Dolan bicycle went missing from the basement car park of St. John’s Well Way, Kilmainham, Dublin 8 last Saturday, February 2, between the hours of 10am and 4pm.

I would really appreciate it if you could spread the word and if you come across it please let me know. Thank you.

I’m writing on behalf of a bunch of concerned customers at The Blue Light pub [Sandyford, Dublin 18].

A little girl about 4 years old, was in The Blue Light Pub in Dublin yesterday with her parents and she had a teddy with her. She said even though he was small and old (a bit tatty I thought) that she loved him most of all. Her parents confirmed that he was indeed her favourite.

However, when they left I found teddy under a seat! He had fallen down while they were getting coats etc.

I shared it on The Blue Light Facebook’s page, and over 200 people have shared it too but we haven’t heard from her parents.

He’s still lost, and although he’s having a nice time with the customers by the turf fire and listening to music, he would very much like to go home to his little girl

I don’t normally do this but a good friend lost her wallet (above) containing Tax Saver, Leap and Dublin Bikes card yesterday evening somewhere between Grand Canal Dock and Connolly Station [Dublin] at 6-615pm.

She is hoping it was seen/picked up and might find its way back to her..


Just dropped.
