One of President Michael D Higgins' dogs has died

The sad news about Síoda was revealed in a weekly newsletter from Áras an Uachtaráin.

She had been recovering after an operation earlier this year.

Síoda was one of two Bernese mountain dogs that President Higgins has, along with Brod.

The two dogs become celebrities in their own right - greeting visitors in the Phoenix Park, ranging from British royalty to the Irish women's field hockey team.

An unofficial Instagram account was also set up featuring the two dogs.

In 2018, President Higgins spoke about his love for the dogs.

"They're a very sociable breed and they're very safe children, and I've always had dogs all my life".
