A young girl released a balloon in Belfast last week and it landed in Carlow

The balloon was then found in Carlow by a man while he was out on a walk

A belfast girl has made a new friend in Carlow after releasing a pink balloon to her grandad in heaven.

8 year old Jessica from the city’s Shore Road area released the balloon over a week ago, on her eighth birthday.

The balloon was then found in Carlow by a man while he was out on a walk.

The man’s daughter, Laura, posted their find on Facebook in a post that went viral online.

According to the Belfast Telegraph, Jessica’s next task is to write a letter to Laura thanking her for rescuing her balloon.

She plans to include a special drawing showing her launching the balloon — and Laura catching it.
