We're world famous for our friendliness here in Ireland but it seems even our animals are getting in on the act now.
An enterprising seal in Howth has realised that people will feed him fish if he waves at them.
Simon McGarr of www.mcgarrsolicitors.ie spotted him giving greetings on a walk yesterday with adorable results.
His fellow seals will have to up their game to get in on his scheme.
We cannot confirm or deny if the seal in Howth is the same hungry seal that's been hassling a fish and chip shop in Wicklow Town for his daily feed.
