A public appeal has been launched after the 1995 All-Ireland medal belonging to former Dublin footballer Dermot Deasy was stolen.

Deasy's club Ballymun Kickhams made the appeal after the medal was taken from Deasy's home on Friday night.

Deasy was part of the Dublin panel that defeated Tyrone in the decider, but did not feature on the day because of injury.

The Ballymun man won an All Star at full back in 1993 and won county honours with his club in 1982 and 1985.

Kickhams made the appeal on social media yesterday and have urged the public for any assistance.

"Dreadful sign of the times that we have to ask the public's help in trying to find the All Ireland medal belonging to Dermot Deasy, that was stolen from his home last night (Friday)," the statement read.

"Anyone with information, please call the Garda confidential line 1800-666-111 or Ballymun Garda on 01-6664400 or by private messaging us here.

Any help would be gratefully received in helping recover this priceless medal."
