Irish Trawlers have been working with Bord Uisce to helping clean up our shoreline & Damien recently went out with fisherman Ivan Toole to see how they are playing their part in keeping Ireland's shoreline clean. Multi-award winning underwater cameraman, Doug Allan, has worked alongside Sir David Attenborough on ground-breaking documentaries such as BBC's Blue Planet, Frozen Planet and Ocean Giants. As one of the world's best underwater cameramen Doug has had the chance to get up close to some of the most powerful and awe-inspiring mammals found on land and sea. Doug is in Galway this weekend for Seafest and spoke to Damien earlier.
