Andy Irvine’s Instruments Found & Returned!

“To everybody who has helped me or shown concern about my missing instruments, I give my heartiest thanks. On Monday I got an email from SAS to tell me……THEY’D FOUND MY INSTRUMENTS!!! They were rushed to Dublin & delivered to my door yesterday evening!! I can’t tell you how it feels to have them back. I have a permanent smile on my face – and so do they. Thanks to Providence & all kind people who gave their time & energy!”

Andy Irvine’s instruments gone missing @DublinAirport

Please see this message posted today 11th July 2022 from Andy Irvine’s facebook page, if anyone knows a way to help locate these instrument please get in touch:

“Flying to Denmark ten days ago to play at a Festival, my two Sobell instruments, a guitar-bouzouki & a mandola, probably valued in excess of €16,000, failed to arrive & have not been traced yet. The chaos at airports is such that they may be in Dublin, Frankfurt or Copenhagen. I have a suspicion that they never left Dublin & I wonder if anybody knows someone there, working as a baggage handler, who has access to misplaced baggage & might look for my missing instruments?”
