Christian Extremists Steal Statue

Police released photographs of the statue taken before the theft
A statue of Manannán Mac Lir by sculptor John Sutton has been stolen from the viewing point on Binevenagh Mountain near Limavady in County Londonderry. It had only stood there a year. The thieves left a wooden cross in place of the statue with the words 'You shall have no other gods before me'.
Manannán Mac Lir is a sea deity in Irish mythology and is also said to have been the first ruler of the Isle of Man. Manand is the old Irish name for the Isle of Man and as his surname suggests, he was the son of Lir, meaning sea.
