Several years ago when I used to work in Ireland I would often stay at the Royal Hotel in Bray for weeks on end and on many occasions especially when the kids were on holiday from school I travelled across from the U.K. with my wife and three kids. When I was in Dublin my family would buy loaves of bread each morning and walk down to the mouth of the River Dargle on the outskirts of Bray and feed the swans. At that time there were literally dozens of swans at that particular location. Are the swans still there... does anyone know?

Tbf it's a pretty obscure question. Twenty seconds on Google Street View tells me there were still swans there in September 2014. Unless anyone has information to the contrary I would suspect they are still there today.

Not sure about the location, but they still seem to be there. Only in Galway, but lots of swans there and I seem to be seeing a lot more than a few years ago.
