Where is the best place in Ireland for kind strangers and good deeds?

Has a kind stranger ever paid you a good deed?

Dublin was recently voted the fifth friendliest city on earth and while some might argue, there are some great acts of kindness and friendship happening across Dublin's fair city - and the wider island of Ireland - every day.

Last night, Independent.ie Social Media Editor Clare Cullen  got a flat tyre on her way home from work and tweeted this picture of the kind Dublin City Council men who stopped to help* her change it (*read: do it for her).

 

Another one of our journalists, Denise Calnan, was helped by several kind strangers when she fell off her break and fractured her arm. Both ladies are originally from the country and report very positive interactions with the Dublin natives.

Coming from even further afield, the story of the heroic American tourist robbed while rescuing drowning man from river was not a nice reflection on the nation's capital - but people overlooked the big-hearted witnesses who treated the hero to night out on them to thank him for his kind deed.

So we have the Dublin examples of both good and bad and we want to know - where is the best place in Ireland for good deeds? Send us your stories of a random act of kindness you've experienced from a stranger to Independent.ie or tweet with #IndoSubmit (bonus points for pictures!)
