Áras an Uachtaráin has gotten a new resident, in the form of a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy.
The new five-month-old dog is currently in training.
President Michael D Higgins has given him the name 'Misneach', which translates as 'Courage'.
The latest pitter patter of tiny paws comes just months after the death of Síoda, who passed away last September following a short illness.
She had been recovering after an operation earlier in the year.
She was one of two Bernese mountain dogs that President Higgins has, along with Brod.
The two dogs became celebrities in their own right - greeting visitors in the Phoenix Park, ranging from British royalty to the Irish women's field hockey team.
In 2018, President Higgins spoke about his love for them: "They're a very sociable breed and they're very safe children, and I've always had dogs all my life", he said.
