The preserved heart of Dublin’s patron saint has been stolen from the city’s Christ Church Cathedral, officials say. The thief would have needed metal cutters to prise open the iron bars protecting the wooden heart-shaped box holding St Laurence O’Toole’s heart.
Police believe it happened some time between Friday night and about 12.30 GMT on Saturday. “They specifically targeted this, they wanted the heart of St Laurence O’Toole,” a church spokeswoman said.
