PICS: Take a minute out of your day to see this beautiful story of one man and a swan in Limerick

The most heartwarming story you'll read all week.

Sometimes the two right people are in the right place at the right time. This was the case on the Sarsfield Bridge in Limerick on Sunday as good guy Jack McGrath and Limerick-based photographer Deirdre Power were brought together to do something special.

Traffic was brought to a halt on the bridge as a result of a swan who had made his way on to the busy road. That's when McGrath, who is now being called "The Swan Whisperer", stepped in.

The brilliant photos snapped by Power tell a love-story for the ages, just in time for Valentine's Day as well. Jack should be a busy boy tomorrow, as we can see he really cares about birds.

Take a look for yourself, some of the pictures are absolutely class.

McGrath was praised by Limerick Animal Welfare for his actions, and the comments section on Facebook has been extremely generous to him. Well deserved too.
