It's said worldwide that Irish people are among the friendliest in the world, and while it can often feel like that's not true (we're talking prime time LUAS rush hour crankiness here), an English tourist has written the sweetest letter thanking Dubliners for their kindness.

Mark from Lancashire suffered a brain injury after he collapsed on Leeson Street while visiting Dublin with his partner. 

After receiving treatment in hospital, he is now safe and sound back at home, but Mark wanted to let Dubliners know how grateful he was for all that they did for him.

He wrote a letter to the Lord Mayor of Dublin, and it's absolutely lovely.

A stranger rang an ambulance, and the Central Hotel kindly let his partner stay an extra night for free while Mark was in hospital 

"I can not explain how grateful I am to the people of Dublin, who have been the most friendly and thoughtful people I have ever met"

Mark went on to say that the Lord Mayor must be incredibly proud to be the Mayor of such a "wonderful city."

This has made our day.
