A priceless ancient necklace was returned to the National Museum of Ireland after being found in a dumpster.
The necklace, which is dated between 2,300 to 1,800 BC, was worn by the early kings of Ireland and called a lunala.
In 2009, it was stolen.The police had managed to locate the dumpster mere hours before the garbage would be collected.
Detectives discovered the necklace and two discs while wading through the trash, which are considered to be some of the most important archaeological discoveries in many years. The museum’s director Pat Wallace is considering the discovery to be the “luck of the Irish.”
