SAMMY THE SEAL is well-known in Wicklow town and regularly pops his head up to say hello to passersby.

However, when the tide is high, like it was during last week’s flooding, he likes to get a bit more up close and personal.

Known as a local in the town now, Sammy, is often fed by the local fishmonger. Most days around lunchtime, he can be seen waiting in the river to be fed and people gather to watch.

With the high tides in recent weeks, he hasn’t had to sit back and wait and last week he decided to make his one way to the fish shop, crossing the main road heading straight for some lunch.

Sammy also made an appearance in the town in January when the weather was also bad.
