This talk will showcase some of the extraordinary seabird populations of these offshore places and focus on some of their amazing migratory journeys. Ongoing scientific research to protect and conserve their numbers will also be featured as well as some interesting links between onshore heritage and the sea.

The coastline of Fingal, Co. Dublin, stretches northwards for more than 30 km from Ireland’s Eye to the Delvin River on the boundary with Co. Louth. Along the way six islands well known to sailors from earliest times offer habitat and sanctuary to wildlife.
