Lillie's Bordello has appealed for the safe return of a stolen plaque that had been presented to them by Ross O' Carroll-Kelly.

Speaking to Independent.ie, a spokesperson for the club said that they think the sign was taken "in the last week or so".

"It was noticed that it was missing at the weekend - that's not to say it was taken at the weekend".

The club are "taking steps" to combat the theft, including "checking CCTV" and taking to social media.

"We sent out a few tweets... there's been a lot of activity on Twitter and Facebook about it".

Ross O' Carroll-Kelly weighed in online, tweeting "I don't know who you are. But I'm coming after you like Liam Neeson from Taken", while  Gráinne Seoige of Crimecall asked if the club had checked their CCTV footage.

The theft has not yet been reported to Gardaí but the club are "looking into it".

The sign pays homage to Ross O' Carroll-Kelly's many mentions of the club in his novels, and reads "Where Ross O' Carroll-Kelly broke the hearts of 1500 girls between 2001 and 2006.

It sat on a pillar at the end of the laneway outside the premises.

Lillie's Bordello are asking anyone with information to tweet with #Lillies.
