AN intriguing ad on the Corkman News this week has prompted lots of speculation on Twitter.
The appeal to find a man who called himself Mark ( she thinks) is made by a woman who doesn’t give her name but describes herself as “petite with dark hair and skin and brown eyes...”
The woman reminds ‘Mark’ “We met at Copper Face Jacks on the night of 26 August 2010...I drank Corona that night if that jogs your memory.
“Was living in Phibsboro in Dublin. You came back to the house.
“Really need to get in touch, its (sic) urgent....if you read this or your (sic) mates with this person please get in touch via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org”
Corkman News is a Mallow based weekly newspaper that publishes three editions covering the Avondhu, North Cork and Muskerry regions.
Tweeters speculate that the young woman contracted an STD from the encounter, or that she fell pregnant as a result of the meeting over a year ago – if that's the case 'Mark' might be meeting a new relative this Christmas!
