A wedding singer has spoken of her embarrassment after accidentally flushing her friend's €8,000 engagement ring down a toilet.
Imogen Gunner (32) from Newbridge, Co Kildare, didn't realise the ring had been wrapped in a ball of tissue that she flushed away while staying in the Bellinter House Hotel in Navan with friend and bride-to-be Ashleen Cahill.
Imogen - who remains friends with Ashleen and is set to perform at her wedding in November - said she hopes the ring can be fished out of a septic tank at the hotel.
"We are appealing for someone who knows septic tanks to come forward so that we can retrieve the rings. Someone must know how to get metal and diamonds from sewage," Imogen said.
