A couple has found a message in a bottle while strolling on a beach in County Donegal.
According to UPI, Rita Simmonds and Ciaran Marronn of Belfast found the bottle during a walk on Magheraroarty beach on the Dooey Peninsula.
Inside the bottle they found $2 in U.S. currency. There was also a note written by an 11-year-old called Sasha. She wrote that the bottle had been launched from Ocean City, Md, in 2019. She had included a phone number and said that she would love the bottle’s finders to get in touch.
Speaking to the Donegal Daily, Simmonds said:
“It’s like a childhood dream to find something like this. We’ve found amazing things on the beach before, like fossils and stones, but never anything like this.”
The couple confirmed that they are hoping to contact Sasha and tell her that they had found the bottle.
