best-selling author Kate Kerrigan issued a “frantic” appeal for help in finding her missing laptop - containing her unpublished novel - which she left in a Dublin taxi.
Her friends Cecelia Ahern and Marian Keyes took to Twitter yesterday to mount a social media campaign to find the lost laptop.
The incident occurred at around 1.10pm yesterday when the writer left Heuston train station and travelled in a taxi to Brown Thomas on Grafton Street.
“My friend & author Kate Kerrigan left her laptop with her new novel in a taxi from Heuston Station to BT at 1pm today. Pls help! #lostnovel,” wrote the PS I Love You novelist.
Ms Ahern tweeted for a second time to remind her followers that the laptop was still missing but thanked people for their “big hearts”.
Ms Keyes also joined in on the campaign, asking her 57,000 Twitter followers to join in on the search.
Ms Kerrigan said that she left the laptop in a grey Toyota Avensis taxi. She described the driver as a “good looking Dub” who was in his 30s with a shaved crop haircut.
Ms Kerrigan is a New York Times best-seller.
