It's Mooney Goes Wild today, and joining Derek on the panel are Richard Collins, and Eanna ni Lamhna.
MINKE WHALE IN GALWAY
During the week we received this e-mail from one of our listeners, Darran Ganter:
I came across this whale washed up just on the Dublin side of a small village in Galway called Roundstone. As you can see it's about 6 metres long so obviously its not fully grown BUT it's not really that young either. It had been washed up on Friday evening last and was alive. It then went out with the tide. Then it was beached on Saturday at its final resting spot. It was very thin and reports show that it hadn't eaten in a while. No specific time indicated. We ask Richard and Eanna about the whale - for the photos and video that Derek talks about, click here.
