Bridget is his cross.
A Bridget from Limerick answered an appeal by a Donegal man in last week’s Leader – but alas she wasn’t the girl he has been desperately seeking.
Edmund Meehan contacted the [Limerick Leader] to locate a lady he fell for in Lisdoonvarna a year ago.
He told his story in last week’s Leader and asked Bridget to get in contact with him. One did.
“I got a lot of calls and texts after the story appeared. I did meet a Bridget from Limerick, but it wasn’t her,” he rued.
“I hung about with her, got her a drink and had bit of craic with her and her friend,” said Edmund.
But he only has eyes for his Bridget and Edmund hasn’t give up hope yet.
“Somebody was saying she might have emigrated because she was unemployed. I haven’t given up.”
