NJ girl’s message in a bottle makes its way to Ireland

A message in a bottle from a 4-year-old girl made it from the Jersey Shore all the way to Ireland.



Rancocas Friends School teacher Nora Dunfee took her students on a field trip to Barnegat Light, where they tossed messages in bottles into the ocean.



The letters asked those who found them to mail the bottle back to the school with information about where it was found.



Lila Rose Lepore's bottle made it to Carrickfinn in Ireland.



"Before this, Sandy Hook was about the farthest any of the bottles had traveled," Dunfee says.
