Is this yours? Gardaí are trying to reunite you with all your lost stuff

If you’re missing a tool box, a trumpet, or your wedding ring – there is hope.

WEDDING RINGS, POWER tools and many, many smartphones are among the items Gardaí are trying to return to the rightful owners.

If you’ve had an item stolen recently (or you lost something and you’re a bit embarrassed about it), constantly scanning eBay is not the only way to see where it ended up.

In particular, Gardaí in Cork city have launched a new appeal for members of the public to claim their jewellery, purses and sweet, sweet fixie bikes.

Are these your shoes?

The newest batch of lost and stolen stuff in the People’s Republic of Cork was announced yesterday on the Garda Facebook page.

If you misplaced something in the area recently, and you’d quite like it back, check out this list of photos, and follow the instructions to come in and claim your prized possession.

Last month, Gardaí made a special appeal for the owners of €100,000 worth of art to come forward.

The paintings and antiques were seized from a house in West Dublin recently, and include works by the likes of Robert Ballagh and William Ashford.

Is this yours? Call Pearse St Garda station on 01-666-9012 if you think it is.

For everything else – phones, rings, a big box of screws and nails – have a look through this list of photos from around the country, to see if your stuff is available.

And if you happen to have lost your lovingly polished trumpet and very, very fancy velvet case – Gardaí at Shankill might just have it for you.
