Valen­tine’s card takes scenic route to Ma­rine Ter­race

Bray People - - NEWS - By MARY FOGARTY

THE PEO­PLE and post­men of Bray en­sured that the course of true love ran smoothly last week, when the en­sured that a St Valen­tine’s Day card made its way to the cor­rect address.

‘Some very kind or ro­man­tic res­i­dents of Bray worked very hard to get the card to me,’ said lo­cal woman Claire Dig­nam.

She fi­nally re­ceived the card from her boyfriend Ea­mon Ed­wards on Thurs­day, when she saw a woman drive up and pop it in her let­ter­box.

While Claire lives in an apart­ment on Ma­rine Ter­race, Strand Road, Ea­mon had not in­cluded ‘Ma­rine Ter­race’ on the en­ve­lope.

There were four ad­dresses writ­ten on the en­ve­lope, Es­planade Ter­race, Martello Manor, Marl­boro Ter­race, and Broad­way be­fore, fi­nally, some­one wrote ‘ try Ma­rine Ter­race’ on the card.

Ea­mon lives in Rath­gor­mack, County Water­ford, and the pair met last year in Din­gle.

Claire was de­lighted that her card was de­liv­ered, hav­ing taken some­thing of a scenic route.

She be­lieves that the suc­cess­ful delivery was down to the ef­forts of both the postal ser­vice, and res­i­dents of the other lo­ca­tions.

While it was a lit­tle late, the card was cer­tainly worth wait­ing for, par­tic­u­larly given the heart­warm­ing ac­tions of those who helped it on its jour­ney.
