Group spots first whales of season off Wexford coast

The first whales, of what has now become known as 'Whales Watching Season' on the Hook Peninsula in county Wexford, have been spotted.

The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group confirmed the sightings of two Humpback Whales, five Fin Whales and a 'Superpod' of Dolphins.

It is the third year in a row they have been seen off the Peninsula for a period of time.

A huge herring haul in the south-east is said to be the main attraction for the mammals.
