The first Northern Irish jar

Jar No 252
Kirsty Hall: Jar No 252, Sept 2011

Jar No 252 was originally reported as being found by one of our regulars, Richard. I’m not entirely sure what happened next but I think Richard gave it to his sister-in-law, Sarah, who passed it on to her friend, Pam.

I heard from Pam today – she has kindly released the jar in Londonderry, so we can tick off our first Northern Irish city on the Big Jar Adventure list. How exciting! Thank you for the photo, Pam.

If you’re in that neck of the woods, good luck with your jar hunting.

Now that I’ve printed out some maps & gone through my databases, I’m taking great delight in ticking off streets that I haven’t done yet.
