A helping hand

•I am a newcomer to Ireland the land of my grandparents, having been hounded out of Zimbabwe. I have now been here a year.

When I arrived last year in spring I could not believe how incredibly beautiful the country was.

Earlier this year, I witnessed the first Mallard ducklings making their appearance on the Grand Canal and a rare pair of garganay and shelduck ducks, to boot. Spring was in the air and I was in love with the country.
