A 60-foot fake snowman that vanished from a town center has turned up safe and well – if a little deflated.

The inflatable Snowy the Snowman had been missing from Wicklow Town for a week but has now been returned, accompanied by a sign saying “Sorry.”
Following a tip-off, Garda (Police Officer) Anthony McHugh and Garda Neil Doyle located an airless Snowy at the Halpin Monument in the town last Tuesday morning.
