A Dublin woman recently reunited with her late husband's lost wedding ring hopes to repay the favour by returning a ring she found.
Suzanne D'Arcy Clarke was devastated when her late husband's wedding ring was lost by her son on a night out.
"I lost my lovely husband Shay two years ago. He was such a great and lovely man and such an important part of our lives," she said.
"I gave my son Darren my husband's wedding ring so he could have a piece of him and I had a jewellers put a little loop on the ring so he could wear it around his neck.
"Unfortunately, Darren lost it on a night out last April and we were so upset. He came in and said 'Mom you're going to kill me. I lost the ring.' I was so upset. I really was devastated to lose it and I thought we'd never see it again."
Dundrum mum-of-two Suzanne had lost all hope of finding Shay's ring when her sister spotted a notice on a community Facebook page.
"My sister Sarah was thinking about doing the marathon and happened to be on the Marlay Park Facebook page for runners and saw that a man's wedding ring had been found," she said.
"We got in touch with the person - such an honest and lovely person. She asked me if there was anything distinctive about the ring and the penny dropped that I had placed the loop on the ring. It ended up being my husband's wedding ring and I was so thrilled to have found it".
Earlier this week, Suzanne found a wedding ring in the Nutgrove Shopping Centre car park in Rathfarnham and hopes she can repay the favour.
"It is quite an old-fashioned gold ring and quite chunky. I hope that the owner of this ring will get to experience the same joy I did when that woman found my ring."
