first_imgA woman has told how she lost her engagement ring at a Donegal beach – only to find it again more than 18 months later!MLA Nichola Mallon thought she would never see the ring again after she lost it on a play park at the beach at Ballyliffin.After losing the ring on the beach she searched for hours into the evening and again the next morning raking the sand in the hope of finding her ring. Strangers even lent a helping hand with a metal detector only for their hunt to end without success.“I came home distraught and felt awful ever since,” she added.“I cannot believe that 18 months later a lady would find it, her sister would post it on Facebook and my ring and I reunited.“I can never thank Fiona Collins and her sister Amanda enough for finding it and for their honesty. “Never Give Up Hope,” she ended her post with.Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, the MLA explained how the good fortune was all down to the weather.The recent hot spell had burned away reeds leaving the ring to be found.“It probably never would have been found only for the weather,” the MLA added.Before leaving the area the family left messages with those that had helped in case the ring showed up and then all of a sudden a text came out of the blue. After a few messages husband Brendan was dispatched back to Ballyliffin to retrieve the ring.“We exchanged pictures and a description and even when she said ‘yes’ I didn’t believe it until it was back on my finger. I never got my hopes up.”Last week a little boy helped reunite lost wedding and engagement rings with their owners after he was on a treasure hunt in Donegal.Again social media came to the fore to bring a happy ending. Treasure hunter Oliver (8) reunites lost engagement and wedding rings with grateful owner“It just shows you to never give up hope,” added Nichola.“You hear these stories and you imagine it could happen to you, but you never believe it – you dream. We never replaced it.“I know it’s an engagement ring and they are sentimental to everyone. But I never had a say in picking it, Brendan did it all on his own and we thought it was lost for good.“I’m over the moon these things never happen to me.”She added: “I can’t thank Fiona and Amanda enough. It shows you the power of social media and that there are good honest people out there.”Woman finds lost engagement ring 18 months after losing it on Donegal beach was last modified: August 15th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BallyliffindonegalNicola Mallonringlast_img read more

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletter >ÉPURE, the fine-dining restaurant in the Tsim Sha Tsui area of Kowloon that serves dishes almost exclusively from France, has prepared holiday menus to round out 2015 and ring in the New Year.This holiday season, guests can enjoy Chef Nicolas Boutin’s take on a traditional French Christmas Eve feast, or Réveillon, that features the celebrated ingredients used in France during the festive season. Chef has sourced chestnuts from Ardèche in south-central France, foie gras from the Périgord region and blue lobster from the coast.“ÉPURE is a home away from home for many French expatriates in Hong Kong, so creating a holiday menu that pays homage to the traditions of France was really important to me,” said Chef Nicolas Boutin. “For this year’s menu, I have chosen some of my favourite premium ingredients such as the capon from Bresse (Eastern France) and scallops from Normandy, accenting them with rustic, festive ingredients such as Brussels sprouts, cranberries and pomegranates. Corsica clementines are also in season during the holidays, so our Head Pastry Chef, Matthieu Godard, has designed delicious desserts to round out the menus.”Three and four-course menus will also be available on La Terrasse at ÉPURE for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, so guests can sit harbour-side and enjoy a scenic view of Hong Kong.In addition to the special menus, ÉPURE will be introducing festive cocktails and hot drinks such as mulled wine (a special recipe from Chef Matthieu Godard), cherry ginger and the restaurant’s famous hot chocolate throughout the month of December.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more
