Leona Maguire thanks the ‘legend’ who found her missing golf bag after flying out of Dublin airport


Golf star Leona Maguire’s urgent request to find her golf bag has been answered after her luggage was found ahead of a tournament.

The Cavan native posted a message on social media to help locate her missing racquets after flying to Geneva, Switzerland for the Amundi Evian Championship.

In a post on Twitter, the 27-year-old said the airline had “no idea where it is”.

“Really need help from someone @DublinAirport or DAA. Flew direct from Dublin to Geneva yesterday and somehow my golf bag disappeared between check in and take off. @FlySWISS & @swissportNews have no idea where it is,” she said.

“Need it badly for @EvianChamp Major this week. Air tags are no help as Swiss Airlines cannot locate the bag in their system.»

The 27-year-old said AirTags didn’t work because Swiss Airlines couldn’t find the bag in their system.

But within an hour of the post appearing, a Twitter user responded that his sister, who appears to be working at Dublin Airport, had found the missing bag.

The sports star, who is ranked No. 19 in the world, replied: “Just spoke to a legend named Claire? You found the bag.”

Airport staff are working to reunite the golfer with her clubs.

The 2022 Amundi Evian Championship begins Thursday at the Evian Resort Golf Club in France.

The event marks the return of the LPGA to France for Major Championship Golf with 44 of the top 50 in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Ranking among the top contenders.

In recent weeks, the problem of unclaimed baggage has affected many airports worldwide, with thousands of lost items piling up.

Airlines have also been forced to cancel flights due to staff shortages due to Covid-19.

Lost baggage is the responsibility of the individual airlines, not the Dublin Airport operator, DAA.

The DAA said passengers who cannot locate their bags should contact their airline or groundhandling company directly, numbers for which are available on the DAA website.

Graeme McQueen, Media Relations Manager at daa, previously said: “We hope that Swiss Airlines and their handling agents will be able to resolve this issue for Leona as soon as possible.”

Aer Lingus and Ryanair handle their own baggage handling, while other airlines use handling companies such as Sky Handling or Swissport.

Independent.ie has contacted Swissport and is awaiting a response.
