Good deed in Dublin cemetery... for a stranger 4,000 miles away

It’s the kind of thing that makes you say ‘ah here’, but in a good way.

TWO DAYS AGO, someone in Canada logged on to Reddit’s Ireland page and made a relatively simple request.  He/she asked someone, anyone, to go and visit their great uncle’s grave in Harold’s Cross.

The poster included a link to an image of the grave online, and one day later someone responded, posting this image of flowers on the grave, not asking for anything in return, simply saying that it had been a ‘bitch to find’.

To put things in perspective, here is what the cemetery looks like on Google Maps.  It's not small.  In fact, it's huge.

The original poster responded thankfully, saying they were in tears, and everyone else was mega impressed.  You can read it all here, but we particularly liked reading the grave visitor's strategy for finding it.

We reckon that is pretty genius, actually.

Technology, eh?  Maybe it really is bringing us all closer together.
