We promote Dublin to the world, via our website (Dublin.ie) and social media. Over the past couple of months we’ve been collecting photos of essential workers, as the county responds to the COVID-19 crisis. We collected them via social media and email, the call open to all who would send a photo. We present their photos here, along with their professions, in thanks for the work they’ve done, and continue to do.

Dublin Treasures – The Phoenix Park Deer

A gang of lads. Shy, reserved, quiet. Just chewing the cud. Sure, every now and again, there is a bit of jostling. Just like you would expect from a group of healthy young males. However, there’s one thing you would not expect. And that’s the complete lack of interest in the women across the way. It’s almost like an old country ballroom. Men on one side. Women on the other. But come September, that will all change. Scents will be donned. Fights will be had. Women will be chased. Another generation will be born. So Park Ranger, Terry Moore, tells Dublin.ie as we cruise through a blustery Phoenix Park in his jeep.
