The bird was flying all around the shop much to the amusement of shoppers. “We knew we had to catch it and we were afraid it might escape out of the store and we didn’t want that,” he said.A plan was eventually hatched to close the store overnight but to leave the bird’s cage open overnight.Mr Cooney thought his plan had backfired when the female parrot also fled the cage.But love worked in mysterious ways when the pair soon fled back to their cage for a cosy reunion!Mr Cooney added “It proves that males, even male parrots, can’t last very long without their partners. “We’re just delighted they’re back together and we’re going to be more careful in future when opening the cages.”The brand new Cooney’s Home and Garden store in Letterkenny.LOVE IS IN THE AIR IN COONEY’S HOME AND GARDEN! was last modified: November 5th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Cooney’s Home and Garden storeescapedletterkennyparrotlast_img
