Reen Harbour , Union Hall West Cork
One of the all time highlights for any aficionado of the natural world is to witness the grace and beauty of a whale. On a bracing Saturday morning aboard the Holy Jo we embarked on a crystal clear day from Reen Pier, Union Hall in West Cork. The viewing precedent had included an otter, harbour porpoises, common dolphins, minke whales and fin whales.
Colin, our skipper is passionate about the whales. This is not a tourist boat, but a boat run by a committed and avid whale enthusiast. He strives to give his customers some of the top whale watching sights and he delivers a stunning experience.
Chasing gannet flurries on the horizon I felt like Tintin on an adventure that evoked comic books of my youth. We sighted gannet activity and drove through the aqua marine water. The water was spitted with diving gannets; white bullets. Common dolphins circled the sprat balls and we witnessed a lunge feed by a fun whale, displaying its pectoral fin.
While in pursuit of wildlife, common dolphins, around 20 in number, rode the bow wave in sheer pleasure. The most amazing thing was that if you leant over you could her their high-pitched calls to each other. In my excitement I lost my lens hood!
This is a truly magical experience and it would be great if all those who love Irish wildlife can promote this ecotourism hotspot on our emerald isle. The jewels are swimming not far off our coast.

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is email@example.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
