A fairytale ending! thumbnail

AFTER 20 years of heartache, the Chronicle has been able to reunite a brother and sister, bringing a happy ending to a bitter sweet tale.
Deirdre Anne Bailes, from Somerset in England, contacted this paper in a desperate attempt to find her long lost mother before it was "too late".
With the help of the Chronicle, Deirdre was able to make contact with her brother, Michael Connor, from Ballymoney, who broke the news that her mother had unfortunately passed away at the age of 77 in 2015.
Michael explained that he had been contacted by a friend the week the paper went to print and asked if he had a sister who lived in England, after recognising a picture of him.
Having ran straight out to get the paper, Michael was able to find his sister on Facebook and make the contact with her for the first time in over 20 years.
