Mystery still surrounds art heist of paintings by Irish masters

The paintings by John Lavery, Paul Henry and Jack B Yeats were stolen from a house in Wicklow last year.

ALMOST SIX MONTHS after three valuable paintings were stolen from a house in Wicklow, gardaí are still to arrest anyone.

The paintings were taken from a house in Donard toward the end of October last year with gardaí now making a fresh appeal for information.

The three paintings are by renowned Irish artists John Lavery, Paul Henry and Jack B Yeats.

All three artists have some of their paintings held in collection in the National Gallery of Ireland.
