Saoirse’s mother Ruth took to Facebook to plead for assistance in recovering the item.
“Our Saoirse lost this very VERY sentimental gold leaf brooch today (December 23) in Buncrana, in either Aldi, Lidl, the butchers or barbers on St Mary’s Road or the sweet shop up the town.
“We searched high and low but no joy. We are hoping for a Christmas miracle and that some Good Samaritan might have found it and is keeping it safe.

“Please share this post #jesusislostjesusisfound but also this isn’t funny our Saoirse is distraught. Fingers crossed,” she posted.

If you or someone you know found the brooch, please contact Saoirse's mother on Facebook - or, alternatively send a message to or  of the Inish Times.
