A DUBLIN WOMAN is trying to find the rightful owner of a bunch of €50 notes that “rained down” on her car on Friday.

Emma Fallon told TheJournal.ie that she was driving along the canal near Harold’s Cross when €50 notes started flying out of the pocket of a man on a bike in front of her and hitting her car.

“It literally rained money,” she said. “It was hilarious.”

She tried beeping at the man on the bike to alert him but he kept going and she stopped to collect as much of the cash as she could. She called her local garda station to inform them but she has been trying to get the word out there online over the weekend in case anyone knows who the money might belong to.

“It was like someone took the money out to go buy a car or for a deposit for something because it was all folded, like when you put it together it was folded in the same place. I felt sorry for the poor guy.”

Fallon believes it was a young man on the bike and is keen to reunite him with his money if he can confirm some more specific details about the incident.
