An 11-year-old boy has made the unlikeliest of friends in the form of a swan he has named ‘Mulder’.
ebestian Golding has found his new friend in Santry Park and in recent months began to feed Mulder as their bond grew stronger and stronger.
Me wee brother goes down to Santry Park every few days and feeds a Swan, this has been going on for a month or two now and the same Swan comes straight over whenever he shows up. They’re best friends, it’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. pic.twitter.com/5ouvYIkF1Z

Each time Sebestian met Mulder – a nod to Fox Mulder of the Sci-fi show X Files – their connection grew stronger and Mulder began to recognise his friend who brought him food.
Over the course of a few months, a relationship blossomed, and videos captured in recent days show them hugging and even dancing in unison, Mulder mimicking Sebestian’s moves.
A video captures Mulder following Sebestian before the pair embrace in a hug, while a second video shows the duo mimicking each other’s movements in a mesmerising dance in the Dublin park.
The 11-year-old says he does not feed the swans bread, and said it upsets him when other people do this, saying he “can’t understand why” because it is bad for them.
