Mystery of 20 euro 'love note' solved 31.08.15

THE mystery of an Irish 20 euro 'love note' that went viral last week has been solved – and it's even more romantic than at first thought.
Meath woman Denise O'Reilly was stunned to find a €20 note in her purse last weekend with a message that reads: "Christy, it's always been you! Come and find me – Megan x".
Hopeless romantic Denise felt she should try and reunite the seemingly thwarted lovers so she posted a photo of the money and its wishful message on her Facebook page.
The post was quickly shared almost 16,000 times as followers went into a frenzy of speculation as to the identity of the mystery protagonists Christy and Megan.
Now it's been revealed that 'Megan' had not sent the €20 longingly into the universe - reminiscent of star-crossed lovers Sara and Jonathan in the 2001 movie 'Serendipity'.
Love me tender.
The Anton Savage Show on Today FM managed to get in touch with Meath-born musician Christy who explained everything to the radio programme in an email:
“Megan was the name I used to call my ex-girlfriend. We went out for a year and a half. The name arose from when I misheard her name and thought she was Megan for our first week of dating. Then it stuck," said Christy.
"I'm a musician and while we were going out, I wrote her a song called 'It’s always been you.'
"We broke up, she met someone new. After I saw the 20 euro note on a Facebook post, I called her. She told me she had written it on a note she used to pay into one of my gigs about six months ago. I didn't know she was there. She told me she thought I'd get the cash directly but I obviously didn't. She took it that I didn't want to talk." Christy also revealed that the two are now back in touch again thanks to the power of social media.
