Your readers might be interested in these Irish-made prints. The sightings of the infamous Dublin Fox roaming Dublin’s locked-down empty streets is a lovely example of wildlife moving in when people leave. You can now own a print to celebrate our urban foxes. Might make an ideal gift and a momento of eerie Covid times. Cards start from just €3 and poster prints from €9
