Brave Lisa plans first social outing since raid horror
BRAVE jewellery raid victim Lisa Murphy plans to go to the Derby this weekend, her first public appearance since her horrific ordeal.
And Gerald Kean says his fiancee is on the road to recovery following the terrifying incident where she was tied up and threatened at knifepoint by four masked men who stole €1.5m worth of jewellery from their home in Wicklow.
The high-flying lawyer is now trying to encourage his other half to resume her normal life again. She has been keeping a low profile ever since, as she divides her time between their Brittas Bay house and her parents' home in Cabinteely.
"There's a few things on this week that I'm hoping she'll go to. I'm just trying to get Lisa back into the swing of things again," he told the Diary. "She's in better form than I would have expected her to be but it's natural that her confidence is going to dip after something like that.
"We are planning on going to the Derby at the Curragh this Sunday and that will be one of her first appearances since the robbery.'" He has also signed up her to take part in a fundraising golf event for Mayfield GAA club in Cork.
The robbery at their Drayton Manor home near Brittas Bay netted the raiders an estimated €1.5m, with the heist including Lisa's engagement ring from Michael Flatley as well as her antique engagement ring from Gerald.
