The father-daughter bond is one of the most beautiful bonds one can share. Posts expressing this special bond takes no time to grab the attention. One such post by an Irish father has gained global fame after it went viral. As a part of the latest trend of Twitter “How it started vs How it's going", a man named Ciaran Shannon, from Belfast shared a couple of pictures showing his daughter Niamh at various stages of her academic life.
In all the three pictures, the father-daughter duo can be seen posing in the same way while holding hands and smiling at the camera at the same spot in three different phases of life. As reported by I-News, the first pic was taken on Niamh's first day at primary school in September 1999, the second was taken on her last day at secondary school in May 2013, and the last one shows grown-up Niamh in her graduation gown in 2018. The pictures were taken by Niamh’s mother Brenda.
