Canadian dentist travels 4,000 miles to track down his Irish love he met for two minutes
Lovesick Romeo goes in search of lady he met briefly in County Clare
A Canadian dentist has flown to Ireland to find a woman he met for a mere two minutes earlier this summer.
Sandy Crocker (28), from the Pacific coast province of British Columbia, is determined to track down the lady he met in a County Clare pub last July.
Crocker describes the beauty as being in her mid to late-twenties with freckles and reddish brown hair.
The chance encounter happened on 9th July, when Crocker and his brother popped into An Teach Bia cafe in Ennistymon, County Clare, on their way to visit the Cliffs of Moher.
"She was eating and I didn't want to interrupt her meal so I waited until she was leaving and I asked her for directions to the Cliffs of Moher," he said.
"I was leaving Ireland a day later so, at first, I didn't see the point in pursuing things -- but after she left I decided I had to.”
Back home in Canada, Crocker was unable to get the mystery lady out of his head.
He said: “I went back to work and my life, but there was always a joke here or there from my brother about the Irish girl in Ennistymon.
“She never left my mind, so I decided why not go back and try to find her.”
An avid surfer, he intends to travel around Clare in the hopes of finding his mystery lady before he visits Corkand Belfast.
"Maybe it's a shot in dark but if it is meant to be, if it's fate, then who knows what might happen?"
