A man has appealed for help in finding his wife’s wedding ring which was mislaid this morning - only five weeks after their wedding.

Tom Walsh was bringing his wife Grace’s ring to the jewellers in Dublin this morning to have it adjusted slightly.

The couple were married on June 19, and they say the silver ring is of huge sentimental value.

“I was bringing the ring in to get it slightly adjusted,” Tom explained.

“I had it in my wallet. I put it in a location of my wallet where I always put in my guitar plectrums, and they never fall out. They didn’t fall out but the ring obviously did.”

At around 8.50am, Tom took out his wallet at Pearse street dart station to use his leap card to get through the station barriers. When he arrived in work, he realised the ring was gone.

“Obviously to get through the barrier at Pearse Station, I took out my wallet to take out the leap card.”

 “I’ve gone back down to Pearse Station with the staff to try and find it, and we were scouring the floor but we couldn’t find it.”

“I’m hoping someone’s going to be good enough that when they see it’s a wedding ring, that they might hand it in.”

“It’s five weeks of marriage, that’s what the ring means to us, this is of sentimental value,” he added.

The ring is silver in colour and its top half is covered in diamonds.

“It’s quite a small and delicate ring,” he said.

“I’m just disappointed that it happened so quickly. It’s a wedding ring that we want back.”

“We’d appreciate it if anyone has found the ring would hand it in - we really want it back,” Tom said.

Anyone with information on the wedding ring can contact or Irish Rail.
