Keith Barry was kind of right about the Book of Kells getting stolen

LAST WEEK, MENTALIST Keith Barry predicted a whole host of random events he thinks will happen, like a major oil spill, an Irish government collapse and the theft of the Book of Kells.

Well today gardaí told that one of Barry’s predictions has actually come true (sort of). A copy of the Book of Kells has, in fact, been stolen from St Colmcille’s Church in Meath in the last ten days.

Gardaí in Kells believe it went missing between 1 and 8 of November.

A garda spokesperson told us the copy of the stunning manuscript was secure in a glass cabinet which was not damaged during the theft. One of 100 copies, it is worth around €15,000.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information to call Kells Garda Station on 046 924 0999.

Now, which one of these is next?
