If I"d followed in dad"s footsteps, I"d be an elephant keeper now

2012-10-27 - Dublin, Ireland

Pat Kenny reflects on the pleasure of summers in the Phoenix Park, where both dad and grandad worked in Dublin Zoo. Each morning he would look after the elephants, feed them and spend the rest of the day talking to the public. Even now, many years later, people still send me pictures or tell me with gratitude about how my father took time to talk to them. He became so well known, in fact, that the famous photographer John Hinde made him the subject of three of his famous coloured postcards.

The German bombing raids, which were to become known as the Belfast blitz, were bringing terror to the city - and not just to its human citizens. At Belfast Zoo, Denise was looking after Sheila, an Asian elephant, and she was becoming increasingly anxious about the stress the terrible night-time raids were having on her charge.
