The President’s Glasses

Centred around a forgetful president and his ever-ready pigeon, this story begins at the President’s residence in Phoenix Park as he sets out on a journey to sign some very important documents at Dublin Castle, but forgets his glasses.  Luckily the presidential pigeon knows exactly what’s happened and follows the presidential car, taking in a bird’s eye view of Dublin city on his way.
