Written 100 years ago, this love letter was discovered in recent times in a Cork pharmacy.

While performing renovations on Deasy’s Pharmacy in Macroom, Cormac and Irene Deasy uncovered this long lost note beneath the shop's floorboards.

Remember me when this you see

Remember me forever

Don’t forget the jolly night

We spent in Macroom together.
