Ballybollox, Eire - The Prince of Wails was in shock today when ex-IRA scumbag Gerry Adams fingered diehard Provos for slaughtering and barbecuing the Aga Khan's fabled wonder horse.
"They charcoal-grilled and ate him at a garden party during the Pope's Ireland visit," Adams revealed to the startled royal tosser.
"The Holy Farter even had seconds!"
Shergar's 1981 Irish Derby victory saw him crowned Ireland's national hero following an earlier annihilation of the Brits' Epsom Derby by a record ten lengths.
Two years later the dual Derby champ was snatched in mysterious circumstances from Ballybollox Stud before vanishing without a trace.
Of course Shergar's true fate remains an enigma much like that of the missing Irish Peer Lord Lucan who also disappeard while at 'stud' - in the form of the Claremont Casino in London's Mayfair.
Gerry Adams' cannibalistic proclivities are the very stuff of legend.
