Shannonside FM reunites distressed woman and her lost Christmas shopping

A Sligo woman is praising the wide reach of local radio and the honesty of a Longford man after tracking down her missing airport luggage.

Fiona Gallagher who took the wrong bag with her on a flight to Knock from England last Sunday night, had made several phone calls to the airline and airports involved, but to no avail.

She contacted Shannonside FM yesterday and a listener in Longford recognised the description of the bag and contents.


Fiona got a phone call a short time later and is due to exchange the bags soon with the other person involved in the mix up.

Speaking on the Let’s Talk show today, Fiona thanked the power of local radio and the decency of the Longford person who had her bag which was stuffed full of new clothes she had bought as Christmas presents.
