With a high of 13 degrees celsius, Monday, 15 February 2021 marked one of the of the warmest days of the winter this year. Like many South Dublin natives, I strolled the East Pier in Dún Laoghaire to enjoy this rare moment of warm weather and sunny skies. Here are some of the furry friends that I met on my journey.
