Power of Social Media leads to recovery of stolen caravan


The owner of a caravan which was reported stolen this week from a camp site in Rathdrum, has praised the power of Social Media.

Edwina Mahon-Collins from Co.Kildare and her family were left devastated when they discovered their caravan had been stolen.

However Edwina got a call yesterday she thought she would never get from the Gardai in Wicklow town.

Gardai had recovered the caravan after it was spotted in a garden, a man has been arrested with the theft of the caravan.

Edwina told Wicklownews.net “I cannot praise the Gardai and the people of Rathdrum enough for the help they gave us and to all the people who shared it on Social Media, we are delighted to have our caravan back. We are looking forward to taking it straight back to Wicklow, we love it over there, we are just delighted.”

“The only thing we fear now is it has been shared so much, not everyone will be aware it has been found and we will be stopped for stealing it ourselves.”

Edwina’s Facebook post was shared almost a thousand times.
