New whale species spotted in Irish waters

A species of whale, never before seen in Irish Waters, has been spotted off the east coast last weekend.
The animal is a Bowhead Whale, an Arctic species, and it was photographed and filmed in the mouth of Carlingford Harbour in County Louth.
The sighting has been confirmed by the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG) and it is first time in the 25 year history of the organisation that it has recorded a new species of whale in Irish waters.
