Two attractions are celebrating the birth of three new cubs by calling on the public to help name them.

Dublin Zoo welcomed an Asian lion cub to its pride, while two cheetah cubs are the newest additions at Fota Wildlife Park, Cork. Members of the public can submit name suggestions for all three to both venues online.

"The female cub is settling in very well," said Dublin Zoo's Ciaran McMahon. "She has developed a strong bond with mum Sita."
