Distraught dad wants stolen family movie back
A Dublin man has appealed for the return of a precious family movie contained in a camcorder stolen from his home.
Pat Faherty said his children's Christenings, first steps, and first days at school were all on the camcorder.
The camcorder was stolen along with a laptop and other items by burglars who escaped in his wife's car.
"We're not as concerned about all the other stuff.
"It's the memories that are so precious.
"We would appeal for its return or even to get a memory stick with the videos on it," he told the Herald.
The burglary happened at his family home in Baldoyle on the northside of Dublin on August 18. He said the camcorder is several years old. It is blue and black and the size of a fist. It was in a blue leather case.
He appealed to anyone who could help to leave the camcorder somewhere to be collected with "no questions asked".
It could be returned "anonymously" and he was willing to pay a reward.
He said his two children were asleep upstairs at home when the burglars broke in.
His wife's car was found afterwards but none of the missing items were recovered. He thought the camcorder may even have been discarded because it was of little value to others.
Pat has appealed for anyone who could help to contact him at 085 2304390.
