Golden Eagle Petition
The signature count was 3380 on 5/5/2009 but the more the merrier. I was lucky enough to see a Golden Eagle fly low overhead in Moydart about 15 years ago and it was an unforgettable sight .. please take a moment to sign up ......................................................................................................................................................................

The Golden Eagle Trust has organised an online petition to show the support for the ongoing reintroduction of Golden Eagles, White-tailed Eagles and Red Kites in Ireland, and for efforts to put a stop to illegal poisoning. At the time I write this, there are less than 300 signatories, a number that I fear could easily be equalled or surpassed by a counter-petition, should the IFA or any other organisation put one together. If as many people as possible could take a minute to sign the petition and to forward it on to a couple of people who they think might consider signing it, we could have a significant impact. The petition can be found below at:.....................................................................................................

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.
