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.

Call for Voices of Older People to be Heard

Age Action welcomes relaxation of some cocooning measures but criticises lack of consultation with older people.

 

 

(1 May) Age Action called for the Government to consult with older people as it plans for the longer-term impacts of Covid-19. To date, public health and Government advice has treated the over 70 age cohort as one. As a single age cohort people over the age of 70 have been subject to public health measures but not enabled to participate in the decision-making process that would ensure that their lived experience and their self-identified needs informs the outcome.
