NEW YORK, Aug. 4 (AP)—An ex-GI explained for Ireland tonight for his first meeting with the Irish milkmaid -who found his name and address in a bottle washed up by the sea on her village beach. It was Christmas night, 1945, that Frank Hayostak, returning aboard ship after three years overseas, tossed the bottle into the ocean 100 miles from New York.
THE LONELY medical corps-wrote a wistful note giving his name, his address, 184 Iron street, Johnstown, Pa., and a personal description. Breda O’Sullivan of Listowel, County Kerry, now 23, found It near a farm where she lived on the southwest Irish coast on Aug. 23, 1946. She wrote Hayostak, 27, an electric are-welder In a Johnstown steel mill, telling him of her find. The pair have exchanged 70 letters.
[This story must ring a bell with someone. I would love to know who Breda is. Was there a happy ever after ending to this romantic story?]

As I was having a socially distant picnic with friend in the park I met Marjorie Morkan and Eithne Galvin on their way to the pitch and putt course
