An antique shop in Tralee, Co Kerry shared a very interesting post on Facebook about a 100-year old cabinet that has been causing quite a stir!

Tom O'Connell, the owner of Vintage Vendors joined Mairead on the line to tell her about this 1915 mahogany display cabinet whose door bears a striking resemblance to The Virgin Mary.

The cabinet had been in the shop for about 11 months with the door removed so they could display records. It was only recently that someone spotted the door in the back of the shop and noticed the pattern of the grain in the wood looks like Our Lady of Lourdes.

Tom posted a few photos on Facebook to see what others thought, and has gotten a much bigger reaction than he expected! People have been coming in to the shop to see the door, take photos of it, touch it and say prayers.

Check out the photos and see what you think!
