kindness of strangers

Irish Twitter users are sharing stories of random acts of kindness, and it's lovely


YESTERDAY, IRISH TWITTER user James Kelleher asked his followers for examples of times they were on the receiving end of a random act of kindness.

And the responses are lovely.

Like this story of a man giving up his Aircoach seat to a woman who needed to get to Dublin Airport.

Or this story of a kindly stranger who helped book a stranger into a Japanese hotel.. and paid for the whole thing.

This heartwarming tale of a homeless man who gave 10c to a guy who was just short in Supermacs.


Or this story of a man asking for change at the Luas stop… and turning around to help a fellow passenger with his fare.

In fact, public transport, as frustrating as it may be, seems to bring out the good in people.

As do restaurants.
