Face­book to the rescue as Xmas list and cash re­turned

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY MARK O’BRIEN

A WOMAN has saved Christ­mas for a mother whose daugh­ter is se­ri­ously ill in hos­pi­tal.

Emma Tutty found a large amount of money and a Santa list in Dublin’s Blan­chard­stown on Fri­day.

Her Face­book mes­sage plead­ing to find the owner of the miss­ing items went vi­ral overnight.

In the post she wrote: “Large amount of money was found in Blan­chard­stown, with a kids toy list, please please help get this back to the right full owner.”

It has now emerged the owner has been lo­cated.

A woman from Water­ford who was vis­it­ing her ill daugh­ter in hos­pi­tal, had lost the cash.

Emma wrote: “Some­one has come for­ward for their money... she was on her way to see her daugh­ter who’s in a coma in St James’s Hos­pi­tal.

“She stopped off in Blanch vil­lage to take the money out, but ob­vi­ously she dropped it, but she ac­tu­ally thought she was mugged in town as she thought she felt some­one at her bag.

“So happy she got it back and thanks to every­one that has shared the sta­tus xx.”
