Maura Clune is a seven-year-old girl from Liscannor, County Clare, Ireland who was kidnapped by a Big Sister in 1967. Before the kidnapping, she lived with her parents, Eamon and Charlotte Clune, in their historic cottage near Liscannor Bay.
The kidnapping occurred at 1:45 AM on February 18, 1967. A Big Sister burst into the cottage through a window in the front room, snatched up Maura, and quickly raced back out again before her frightened parents could get a good look at the assailant. Eamon Clune couldn't see the Big Sister clearly due to the moonless night, but he saw the red light coming from her head. He also noticed the Big Sister was slender and above average height. This detail lead local authorities to believe that the kidnapper wore a miner's helmet during the attack. The Clunes were desperate to get their daughter back, and they offered to pay whatever money they had in ransom despite how poor they were.

IN MYSTERIOUS ATTACK
LISCANNOR, CO. CLARE - Parents of a
local girl continue their vigil after a shocking
break-in resulting in the apparent kidnapping
of their seven-year-old daughter.
For generations, the Clune family cottage has
been a comforting sight to fishermen in the
Licannor Bay. Visible from the water and
the scenic Cliffs of Moher, it served as a local
landmark. Two nights ago, its calm was
shattered by an attack at 1:45 AM.
Local fisherman Eamon Clune, 44, and his
wife Charlotte (32) were awoken by the
sudden shattering of a window in the front
room. Moments later, his daughter Maura, age 7, screamed. Mr Clune rushed to
investigate the noise only to notice the unknown attacker racing out of the broken
window with "incredible seed." Clune attempted to pursue, but was quickly
outrun even though the attacker should have been hampered by the child's weight.
Due to the moonless night, Clune was unable to offer a description of the assail-
ant. He notes that the attacker was thin, above average height and wore some
kind of "red light."
"It seemed to come from his head," said Clune.
Superintendent Brian Kerrigan speculates that the attacker may have worn a
miner's helmet. "Based on Mr Clune's description, it's the only thing that makes
The Clunes have received no word from the kidnapper nor any demand for
ransom. "We don't have much, "Mrs Clune wants the kidnapper to know. "But
whatever we've got, they can have. We only want Maura back."
Sgt. Michael Whelan encourages anyone with information to come forward and
advises that time is of the essence.
