THERE I was trying unsuccessfully to take pics of this perfect line of swans as they swam up the Liffey under the bridges. The low light ensured that I wasn’t able to capture the parent and it’s six cygnets as I would have liked. So I decided to go one better and film it.
As I was filming I realised that a lad standing on the boardwalk was chucking rubbish at the beautiful line. What a gobsh*te. While they swam onto the next bridge and then took off I thought it would have been more appropriate for them to fly out of the water then and clout the lads with their wings. Maybe the next time. So here’s the beautiful and guilty parties.
