Age Action is appealing for the public’s help to find the owner of a wedding ring, donated (presumably by accident) to its charity shop in Monaghan.

“I was sorting a bag of garments and preparing them for display yesterday when the ring fell out on the floor,” shop manager Mary Beagan explained.   It is an 18 carat white gold wedding ring for a man.  “We are presuming that it was accidently put into the bag and may be hugely valuable for the owner.”

 “We would dearly like to reunite the ring with its owner,” Mary said.

But it is unclear if the person who owns the ring is living in the Monaghan area or further afield. “The bag of clothes could have been donated locally in the Monaghan area,” Mary explained. “ But it could also have been donated in Dublin as very often bags of clothes donated in Dublin are moved between our shops.”

In order to prove ownership, the owner will have to provide a detailed description of the garment where the ring was stored.

For further details contact Mary Beagan at the Age Action charity shop, 31 Glaslough Street, Monaghan, by phoning 047-75942 or 086 3314439.

STOP67 calls for inclusion of advocates for women and older people on Pensions Commission

(13 November) The STOP67 Coalition has expressed its disappointment at the failure of the Government to appoint sufficient members to the Pensions Commission who reflect the interests of those most affected by the proposed pension age increase and, in particular, organisations representing women and older people. The Coalition includes the National Women’s Council (NWC), SIPTU, Age Action and Active Retirement Ireland.

In a letter to An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin, the Coalition said it was “shocked and surprised” that the Commission does not include the representatives of so many of those directly affected by the proposed pension age increase. This followed the announcement by the Government of the members of the Commission, which is due to assess whether the pension age should be increased to 67 years and to set out a future plan for the pension system.
