Reward offered as prized sign for St Mullins goes missing again

In the left picture, the sign is in place. On the right, taken this week, the sign is gone.

A local café is offering a reward for anyone with information leading to the return of the sign for St Mullins, which seems to have again been taken from the cross at the top of Borris on the approach from Bagenalstown to the picturesque village.

The popular Mullichain Café is offering lunch and a bottle of wine to anyone who gets to the bottom of the mystery of the disappearances. They fear that brazen thieves are poaching the distinctive sign as a collector’s item.

“It is of great concern to the citizens of St Mullins that signs to the Mystical Valley have become the target of collectors,” says café owner Martin O’ Brien.

Beautiful St Mullins by the River Barrow is a particularly nice place at this time of year, and the café is a popular spot for locals, as well as people visiting or doing the walk from Graignamanagh.
