BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Creating memories and bespoke ceremonies
Since its opening at the start of July more 2500 visitors have now flocked to see the White Tailed Sea Eagles at the Viewing and Information point on the shores of Lough Derg located at Mountshannon Pier.
Funded by Clare County Council this new tourism development features not only information and displays about these spectacular birds but also telescopes where people can hopefully view them.
The Mountshannon breeding pair, a six-year old male and a 5-year old female was first collected as chicks on the Norwegian island of Frøya by the Golden Eagles trust.
The birds were then released into Killarney National Park before then been relocated to Lought Derg in 2011. In 2013 history was created when the pair reared the first chick to fly from a nest in Ireland in 110 years. This was then followed by another chick which was hatched in late April.
Open to the public until the end of September this facility is operated by the Mountshannon Eagle Group, Mountshannon Community Council and the Golden Eagle Trust.
