Gardaí have recovered a stolen 800-year-old skull.

The head of 'The Crusader' was decapitated and stolen from a crypt in St Michan's Church in Dublin last month.

It has now been recovered along with another skull.

Gardaí said they found the items as a result of information that came into the possession of investigating officers.

National Museum of Ireland is acting in as advisors.
