Clean-up turns up hundreds of phones and passports

Hundreds of passports, phones, bags and even baby buggies have been recovered by the army tidying up the mess left by revellers.

Over 85,000 music fans packed up their tents yesterday after the four-day music experience but hundreds forgot their personal items, or simply decided to ditch them.

Among the items sitting in the lost and found boxes in Naas Garda Station, right, are hundreds of mobile phones, digital cameras, laptop bags, car keys, passports and security have even recovered a buggy.

As well as dumping tents, blow-up chairs and clothes in the blue and red campsites, music fans left behind inflatable mattresses and sleeping bags for staff at Punchestown to clean up and sort through.

Officers will try to reunite revellers with their property and it will be kept at the garda station for up to a year, a garda spokesman told the Herald.
