Help Required for Koi and Goldfish!!!

Wonder if anyone can help!

Sadly my dear dad passed away over Christmas.  He was the best dad in the world and multi-talented!!!  He was only 72 and had a very acute stroke, we are missing him desperately!!!

As you can see from the photos attached of my parents garden I did not pick my love of gardening off the street!! My mum loves the garden and my dad loves making things for the garden, including tiling, mosaic, woodwork, the dovecot etc.  The other love was my dads pond, only partially seen in the photo.  Unfortunately a few months ago my dad noticied the water level going down in the pond and had to constantly top it up and his job for the spring was to find the leak!!!

We thought the water level had stabilised but it is now dropping further and mum has to top it up every day now!! She is very worried about my dads fish, because they meant a lot to him, 3 small goldfish, 3 comets, 1 beautiful butterfly koi and 2 large Koi (could be up to 15 years old).  So I am now looking for a good home for them.

If you could give me any ideas where that might be or if any of you are interested yourself you could send me a private message.

The fish are in Glasnevin, Dublin!!
