They cruise around the scottish west coast, and no real proof of ever visiting Ireland prior to this. So for Ireland, its a big deal !

The people in the Irish Whale and dolphin group are going nucking futs :-)

Good excuse for Monty Halls to make a new tv series.

He was up here with the basking shark project last year,
They did get some footage of baskings, but they had a weeks holidays built into the schedule and in that time, the basking shark men tagged approx. 150 sharks !!!
They got some good footage, but the following week was awesome !

Tough trying to capture nature and take some scheduled holidays, kinda like oil and water.
But we would be more than happy to entertain him again this year if he was about !

So for anyone who is interested in some cool photos of Orca off the Donegal Coast and Lough Swilly....
Footage and pics taken from 7.4 Redbay called Sea Shells - part of the Welcome to www.baskingshark.ie ! project
Great photos Dan. Sorry i missed them as we all returned on Monday. I see the whales made our local news tonight.
Weather for the tope festival on saturday was rough F5 gusting 6 easterly. (only two caught over the two days)
Noticed the boats taking a right buffeting at Rathmullan pier.
