You might remember earlier this week Irish student Emily Culhane posted this picture to the Electric Picnic Facebook page.

Happy ending for girl who lost her job for her Electric Picnic ticket

The Limerick native screenshotted the recent email she received from her employers and claimed that she had been dismissed after her boss issued her an ultimatum over attending festival this weekend.

Since the post went viral, Emily has received several job offers.

"One was a bar, one is a cafe and one is a recruitment job," she said speaking to Eoghan McDermott on 2FM.

"Just shows you can turn anything into something good in the end."

The manager of the Library bar in Limerick even phoned in and offered Emily a position on air.

"There's a job for her when she comes back from Electric Picnic. There are a few options there for her," he told the station.

Emily also went on to explain that she told her boss she would need time off a fortnight ago, and tried to confirm the request on Saturday before the roster was even made, saying: "When I asked for the time off she said:'If you cared about your job you would sell your ticket

"I panicked and said: 'I don't think I'll do that'. She just said again that if I cared I would sell them.

"That was on Saturday and I got an email from them on Tuesday. I wasn't rostered to work or anything, she hadn't made the roster.

"People online have been saying I probably didn't show up but sure it hasn't even happened yet".

Amongst the job offers, Emily has also received a few marriage proposals and dozens of free drink promises at this weekend's festival.

Eelctric Picnic already has its hero and it hasn't even started yet.
