This may be the greatest Irish missed connection of all time

Did a mobile network outage ruin this person’s love life?

LAST NIGHT, MOBILE operator 48 – the network exclusively for 18-22 year olds – suffered a serious outage.

The company posted on its tech forum that it was experiencing problems “across our network resulting in the failure of calls, texts and data”.

That caused serious problems for one user’s romantic life. Franc left what may be the most searingly evocative Irish missed connection of all time on the tech forum.

They were waiting at the Spire…

… and left this poignant message:

Could it be any more Irish? Let’s just rerun that.

By the early hours of the morning, the company said the issue was resolved. But WAS IT TOO LATE?

Did the Santa jumper survive? Was more Buckfast consumed? We can only cross our fingers and hope.

Franc, if you’re out there, get in touch.
