Gary's glee at return of his lost First Communion cash
A WEXFORD boy who lost his First Communion money on the street was overjoyed this week after the cash was found and handed back by kind-hearted restaurant staff.
Gary O'Sullivan (8) of Whiterock Hill was in tears after losing his wallet containing €260 during a shopping trip with his mother Colleen the day after making his first Holy Communion in Bride Street. It was picked up by a member of staff at Cappucino's but was kept locked up at the restaurant while she was out of the country before being returned yesterday (Tuesday). FROM FRONT
The wallet had been found on the street by Anna Gorska of Cappuccino's the day before she was due to go to Poland on holidays, and not knowing who owned it, she left it under lock and key in the restaurant.
Meanwhile, her colleague Sinead Tyrrell read about Gary's disappointment and mentioned it to Anna when she returned. They were able to confirm that it was found in the area where Gary had lost his money, and were delighted to be able to deliver the good news.
In a happy ending to the tale, the delighted Wexford boy was re-united with his Communion cash this week and to show his appreciation, he presented the girls with a bunch of flowers.
'He's thrilled to bits,' said Colleen who had to console her son after the wallet was lost while the family were shopping on the town.
