Heartbroken student appeals for help after bracelet containing mother's ashes stolen on Dublin train

Grace hopes to have it returned ahead of the first anniversary of her mum’s death after her suitcase was stolen on a train.

A heartbroken student has appealed for help after a bracelet containing her mother's ashes was stolen on a Dublin to Cork train.

Grace Caffrey, a midwife at Trinity College, said she had her small red suitcase stolen from the luggage rack when she was travelling to Killarney.

She is hoping to have the items returned to her ahead of the first anniversary of her mother’s death, including bracelet which has beads connected to a red vial containing the ashes.

Grace said: "So on Tuesday I got the 13.00 cork train from Heuston and by the time I reached Mallow to change train to Killarney my bag (small red rolley case) was gone....

"It has a bracelet in it thats precious to me- it has my mamas ashes in it....its the bracelet in the pic below....

"The guards and Iarnrod Eireann are on the case but they suggested I share a post on Facebook in case whoever took it sees it and maybe their conscience might make them hand this in!!!

"Share it around folks (especially anyone down that direction) I'd be eternally grateful to get it back!!"

She said she had reached out to Gardai and Irish Rail regarding the incident, they are checking CCTV but suggested she raise awareness via Facebook.

She believes her suitcase was taken at one of the stops on her journey, as the train also serves Portlaoise, Thurles and Limerick Junction.

Grace said she would be "eternally grateful" to get it back and hoped the thief's conscience would make them hand the bracelet in.
