Two priceless art treasures still lie buried in mountains

Sixteen of the 18 paintings stolen by the General in 1986 have now been recovered, but a pair of Venetian scenes by Guardi remain missing. The secret of their whereabouts died with Cahill, says Jimmy Guerin

Somewhere in the wilds of the Dublin mountains, detectives believe, two priceless art treasures still lie buried. Gangster Martin Cahill, the only man who knew where they are, is dead.
