Donald MacPhee dug 90 holes and found pieces of old metal, drinks cans and ring pulls before finding the ring after three days of searching the area where the potato patch once was.
MacSween added: “He just came to the door and said: ‘I have something to show you’. It was the ring.
“I couldn’t believe it, but there it was. I thought I would never see it again.”
MacSween’s husband John had bought her a replacement ring while they were on holiday. She wore her mother’s wedding ring until she got the new one but it must feel great that she’s got the original back now.
