Here's the story of how this family photo found on Dublin bus was reunited with its owner

By Anna O'Donoghue

Last week Dublin commuter, @AHoonter found this wallet-sized photo on the floor of the number 37 bus.

In a bid to find its owner she tweeted a picture of the family photo.

“I’m after finding this wallet photo of two lovely ladies on the floor of a 37,” she captioned the tweet. 

“I don’t know where to post it to try and find the owner, going to try Facebook but wonder if someone on Twitter might know what I should do to get it back”

Dublin Bus spotted the tweet and launched a campaign to find the ladies in the photo.

Last week, the daughter of one of the ladies in the photo replied to the original tweet.

Maddie, who lives in the UK, explained that the photo belonged to her grandmother’s cousin, who lives in Ireland.

Sadly she went on to say that the other lady in the photo was her great aunt who passed away 30 years ago.

The photo is now on its way to the family of her great aunt!

It just makes you feel all warm and cozy inside, doesn’t?
