A Dublin man is searching for the mystery pair behind a message in a bottle which had been at sea for three years.

Mark McGowan was walking along the promenade in Clontarf with his wife Clare on Friday when they spotted the plastic bottle, thought to have washed ashore after last week’s flooding. 

The letter, written by a couple by the names of Isobel and Karl, lists their plans and New Year Resolutions for the year 2011.

The only clue Mark has of their home-place is Isobel’s resolution to ‘do/see more of London’ and ‘make more London pals’.

Other resolutions of Isabel’s included ‘work harder, get career on track’, ‘take more photos’, to ‘remember family birthdays’ and to ‘call Dublin more’.

Karl’s promises to himself for 2011 included ‘work harder, get an outstanding ‘grade’’, ‘play a regular sport’ and to ‘eat healthier, learn how to cook more’.

Interested in finding out more about the pair behind the message in the bottle, Karl is appealing for information on ‘Karl and Isobel’ and wants to let them know where the bottle ended up after three years.
