A 26-year student TV presenter from Dublin, Ireland has made an eye-popping discovery when she discovered a total stranger that looked exactly like her after she and a few friends launched a Facebook campaign as a “social experiment.”
Niamh Geaney found her look alike, 29-year old Karen Branigan who lives an hour away, with the pair meeting in real life and taking photos together.
Niamh told Daily Mail UK: “I was ridiculously nervous about how I would react to meeting someone that looks like me.
“For the entire duration of our encounter I pretty much stared at her. I couldn’t get over her face, and some of the expressions she would pull I would think to myself or say aloud, ‘Oh my God that’s my face.’
“I can’t remember the number of times I said ‘this is so freaky’. It was truly amazing.'”
Karen has six siblings while Niamh has 2 and they both confessed that none of their siblings share the kind of facial similarities they have.
Niamh continued: “I would say Karen is the shyer of the two of us,’ Niamh remarked. ‘But then you have to remember this was an even more surreal experience for her than it was for me.
“I knew what search I was embarking on. I’m the weirdo that contacted Karen out of the blue and asked her to meet me in person.”
