DUBLIN, Ireland - A 12-year old boy who had his bike stolen by a bunch of youths earlier this month, has had a welcome turn of luck.
The boy was riding in Brickfield Park, Dublin 12 on May 1st when he was set upon by the youths, who stole his bike. The bike was brand new and the boy had had it only a couple of weeks.
The sequel to the story came on Saturday when the Inchicore Environment group, as a project, set about a day of cleaning of the Grand Canal between Bluebell & Sure Road when they discovered, submerged in the canal, a brand new boy’s bike.
The group contacted their local Community Garda, Graham O’Neill in Kilmainham Station who was able to match the description of the bike provided by the 12-year old to Gardaí when it was stolen.
The bike on Monday night was reunited with its very happy young owner and his parents.
