Dublin: 8 °C Friday 15 January, 2021

11 times Irish people proved they are the kindest in the world


1. Last year, a Belfast bus driver went above and beyond by stopping the bus to give a homeless man a winter coat

2. Everywhere you turn, there are the smallest sound gestures taking place – like when this couple went around Cardiff holding up a sign to give a fellow Irish rugby fan back their lost tickets

3. Or when this Offaly man saw the clamper coming and stepped in just in the nick of time

I was parked behind you and you were just about to get clamped. I stopped them and bought you a ticket so they wouldn’t clamp you. Maybe someday you might do the same. Or you can buy me a pint :)

4. Remember this Dublin Bus driver receiving this note

5. And when famous Limerick artist John Shinnors sold one of his paintings to a local kid for €10

6. There was the time a woman found a wallet at this year’s Electric Picnic and returned it by post with everything intact

7. And this letter and donation from little Leah

8. Then there are the heroes randomly saving bikes across the country – like Trinity College security here


9. And that time a woman noticed a bike wasn’t locked and stepped in

10. When this Dublin restaurant saw someone trying to steal the wheels off this one and intervened, taping this note to the saddle

11. It’s the little things really: like when a Bus Éireann driver in Cork got off to help a lady tie her shoelace because she wasn’t steady enough on her feet to do so
