MENTALIST KEITH BARRY has a long history of making public predictions about the news.

In 2005, he notoriously made a prediction that appeared to foreshadow the Buncefield oil terminal fire, in a sealed envelope on Tubridy Tonight. (Remember that?)

He has now made his predictions for 2015, posting them on Facebook after having what he called “some crazy new premonitions”. They are that:

“The Book of Kells will be stolen”
