Fin whale washed up on Trá Bhuí (Trawee)

Last Saturday morning on the 11th of November 2017 a large male Fin whale was discovered washed up on Trá Bhuí Beach. Although it was a somewhat poignant scene it allowed locals and visitors alike a wonderful opportunity to study these magnificent creatures up close.
