Speaking today, Detective Inspector Michael Coppinger said “These paintings are of considerable material value, but they are invaluable to the Church and to the parishioners. I am appealing to anyone who can help with this investigation to call Crimestoppers or their local garda station today. Perhaps you saw something suspicious on or around 22 June or perhaps you know who is responsible for this crime. I urge you to come forward now”.
Anybody with information can call Crimestoppers on 1800 25 00 25, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
