It was a case of all’s well that ends well in Monksland recently. The no parking sign outside the well known Athlone Springs Hotel was taken on a recent Friday night, but following a humorous appeal online, it was returned.
“Dear Lads,” the hotel wrote on social media the next morning. “Thanks for stealing our portable ‘No Parking’ sign.
“We appreciate that you didn’t break into our hotel and didn’t steal something more valuable like banqueting chairs or tables. We understand that not every hotel can offer you “Grab And Run Signs” on Friday night, however we would be delighted if you can return the sign by Tuesday morning. Of course, if you decide to return the sign today or tomorrow-it is absolutely PERFECT!” Within hours the sign had returned, much to the staff’s delight.
