A woman visiting New Jersey was surprised when three Irishmen approached her with a bizarre request: click our picture and we’ll find it somehow.
“You’ll take the picture and we’ll find it someday,” they said.
As neither of them was carrying a phone or camera, she obliged.
When I was in the city last week, these three Irishmen asked me to take a photo of them, but none of them had phones.
“you’ll take the picture and we’ll find it someday”
so if by some strange turn of events anyone knows these guys, here’s their photo pic.twitter.com/ZrPvKXusJ7

When Christina Boniello tweeted the picture hoping it would reach them, little did she realise it would go viral, resulting in the three being identified within an hour after posting it. Twitter user @tg308gr identified the three men as Seán Tighe, Bernie Waldron, and John Devanney, all residents of Ballyhaunis, County May

It took roughly one hour.
This is why I stay on Twitter. This is a beautiful thing. https://t.co/CLIYERcxYc

Twitter can bring people together, too. These three friends were identified within an hour of this tweet. https://t.co/kbsL3RJSPi
