An Irish woman in London found a surprising romantic plea on her 20 Euro note and posted a photo online.Denise O'Reilly/Facebook

An Irish woman in London got quite the surprise when she pulled a €20 note out of her purse and discovered a love note scrawled across it.

Denise O’Reilly decided it was worth a shot trying to reunite the note with its author (and, hopefully, its intended recipient), so she posted a photo of it on her Facebook page.

The note read:

“Christy, it’s always been you!

Come and find me.

- Megan x”

16,000 shares and one day later, the post made its way to Christy Leech, who responded, saying he’d been in touch with Megan and that all was well.

The Internet was still curious, though, so Christy did an email interview with Today FM, revealing the story:

"Megan was the name I used to call my ex girlfriend," he explained. "We went out for a year and a half. The name arose from when I misheard her name and thought she was Megan for our first week of dating. Then it stuck.

“I’m a musician and while we were going out, I wrote her a song called ‘It’s Always Been You.’

“We broke up, she met someone new. After I saw the 20 euro note on a FB post, I called her.

“She told me she had written it on a note she used to pay into one of my gigs about six months ago. I didn’t know she was there. She told me she thought I’d get the cash directly, but I obviously didn’t. She took it that I didn’t want to talk.

“So, now we’re in touch again but the situation is quite different.”
