Derek Kennedy – the man behind Dublin Daily – told DailyEdge.ie that he is delighted about the little picture’s success.He snaps an image a day on his lunch break and never imagined that the page would attract so much attention.

“I don’t know who the man was but he gave me permission to take the picture” he revealed.

I usually stop and talk to the people but I didn’t have time that day. I wish I had now.
