Hi, on Friday afternoon 18 Sept, I was playing with my grandchildren on the green on our estate in Castleknock Dublin 15 when I felt my gold earring (they are pierced earrings) drop off. I managed to catch the back but not the earring itself. I immediately marked the spot where I was standing when it happened and spent all the afternoon and evening on my hands and knees searching through the grass for it. They were the last present from my husband who took his own life exactly 10 years ago to the day, so the sentimental value and heartache is huge. I was ready to hire a metal detector on Saturday morning, one that they use for searching for drains etc on a building site, but it was no good, it didn't register the earring I had still, so it was unlikely to register the missing one. I know where it should be in the grass and I would appreciate it if one of your members would help me to find it. I am devastated to lose it and the day that was in it has made it all so painful and sad. Please, please, help me find my earring. Many thanks, Gaye.
Gaye, So sorry to hear of this. Someone will be along on the forum shortly and I am certain you will have lots of volunteers to assist you. I'm too far outside Dublin to assist. I would advise you register on the forum. That way people here can contact you privately with phone numbers etc
Hi Gabbie , I have sent you a PM , I will be in Glasnevin tomorrow for most of the day , give me a call on the number in the private message and if i finish early enough I will drop over , best of luck
No luck I am afraid, the area is full of targets which I didnet want to start digging as its a Green in front of Houses , also the earring does not register at all well , even the pin pointer had difficulty (we uses the second of the pair to test) if anyone has a machine with a very small coil that works well on very small targets it might be worth a shot Might give it another go with another machine
