A Norwegian family have arrived at Cork Airport after finding a balloon released in Dunmanway, Co. Cork a full six months earlier promising the bearer a host of prizes in West Cork . Linda Taule and her son Magnus, aged 7, found the balloons in West Norway. A bunch of six helium balloons was freed in Dunmanway on December 19. The note tied to one of them invited the person who found it to contact Catherine Crowley in Dunmanway Chamber of Commerce. Ms Crowley said they got the idea after a friend found a balloon in West Cork a few days after it had been released at a funeral in Wales. The finder was in line to win a stay for two in Gallys on the Green B&B, chocolates from Deirdre Kelly, a hamper from For Goodness Sake Health Shop, a bottle of wine from Connolly’s shoe shop, lunch for two in Marnies Restaurant, and wash, cut and shave, and bottle of champagne, from Ms Crowley’s Boyz to Men barbers. Linda Taule, from the Naustdal region, said she had been on a 2.5-hour hike with her son Magnus, 7, when they spotted three balloons tangled in a tree together. They thought it was rubbish and took it so they could dump it at home. They then discovered a sodden note attached. They dried it out and contacted the number, to discover they were being invited to Dunmanway to collect their prizes. Stuart Buss of Norwegian Air said it was a fantastic story and the airline were delighted to play their part in helping the Taule Leikanger family travel to Cork. ‘If a balloon released in the South of Ireland can make it all the way to western Norway, the least we can do is to help the Taule family fly in comfort with Norwegian and enjoy an easier journey to collect their prize,’ said Stuart. The family flew with Norwegian from Bergen to London Gatwick to pick up a connecting flight to Cork Airport who have also contributed to the prize fund. Some of the events planned for the Norwegians include a food tasting night in Dunmanway, a trip to Ballabuidhe Races, as well as special welcoming and sending off parties for them. 10 hours ago
