Leitrim schoolboy receives letter from David Attenborough

A young Leitrim schoolboy from Dowra, who describes himself as David Attenborough’s biggest fan, was delighted to receive a letter in the post from the celebrated nature television presenter.

Kameron Durkin, who is aged seven, became a vegetarian when he was three after finding out where meat comes from.

The young farmer wants to help preserve the animal species and wrote to the 94-year-old broadcaster to tell him of his admiration for him.

He told Ocean FM news of his delight when a reply from Attenborough arrived in the post.
