A needle in a haystack? Try a wedding ring in a skip...
A newly-married couple noticed something was missing on their drive back from a recycling centre in Navan recently.
Caoimhe and Owen Mooney, who were married on December 23rd, say the staff at the centre went above and beyond to help them - by rummaging through a 40-foot skip.
Owen told Newstalk Breakfast: "It was just on the drive home, and you know when you're kind of playing with your wedding ring - which I've been doing a lot cause it's only new - and I was like 'Oh, there's nothing there'.
"We kind of kept going then cause we were on the way and we were nearly there".
He thought it may have been outside their home, as they had been throwing cardboard into the car.
"But of course we couldn't find it and we were like 'We have to go back'."
"We thought it could be a bit hopeless alright, but we figured we might as well at least try".
Caoimhe described what happened when they got back to the centre.
"They had a good look around and they kind of did their safety checks - they'd a key and different things - and one of the guys had a torch.
"He got in and it was when he was shinning the torch and moving things around he said we were lucky they had emptied the skip earlier that morning, so there wasn't that much compact cardboard.
"I think the shine of the torch must have caught the edge of the ring, and he said 'Oh is it silver? I think I see it here at the bottom'.
"It had obviously sinked to the bottom when they were moving stuff around".
"They were super, very professional and helped us out.
"So thanks to Damien, Robert and Gary who work there; they really got us out of the mud".
On finding the ring, Owen said: "I was very relieved I think, yeah, it could have been a bit of trouble alright.
"I was kind of glad though that it was my ring and not Caoimhe's, because I think hers has a lot more significance".
