A Brazen Theft: The Irish Crown Jewels

On July 8, 1907, one of the most shocking and brazen crimes in history was discovered. The Manchester Evening News reported, incredulously: "On the eve of the departure of the King and Queen on a state visit to Ireland comes the startling news that the Jewels of the Order of St Patrick, valued at £50,000, have been stolen.”

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
