The theft occurred last weekend
A YOUNG woman brazenly stole cash from collection baskets which were handed out during Mass at a church in Limerick city centre last weekend.
“It was initially thought that the priest had recruited a new helper but then she was observed helping herself to the cash from the baskets,” said a garda spokesperson.
While the woman quickly left the church, gardai say it's important Massgoers across Limerick are aware of the incident.
"She was gone from the church in a moment but it’s important that a theft of this nature is highlighted throughout the county and local Massgoers are made aware of it," said Sergeant Ber Leetch.
