first_imgA unique research project off the coast of Inishowen into basking shark behaviour has started in earnest.An unusually early start to the shark season in April caught Donegal’s basking shark research team from Queens University in Belfast a little off guard.With sea surface summer temperatures starting to climb above 11 degree Celsius for prolonged periods a Malin head based research team are gearing up for what may prove to be one of the most memorable seasons in recent Irish marine research. To investigate shark movements and predator- prey associations the team plan to deploy numerous different types of tracking tags on the sharks including five satellite relaying tags.It is hoped these pioneering Fastloc GPS enabled tags will relay live positions and record fine scale movements of the huge sharks.Until now tracking marine based animals has proven to be extremely problematic for scientists because satellite signals can only be retrieved from a steady platform on the waters surface.Light Geo-location using recorded measurements of light levels and day and night have been used to roughly determine positions (with an approx. 75km radius of uncertainty). All sounds a bit complicated, well it is, add in a cocktail of unseasonal weather, unpredictable shark behaviour and some of the Atlantic oceans roughest waters and the possibilities of success are greatly reduced.This small chance of success hasn’t deterred the Inishowen based researchers who are working with the Marine Biological School in Queens University Belfast to pioneer this deployment a first for Ireland and the Atlantic.“Last year we pioneered the worlds first deployment of Timed Depth Recorders on the basking shark, this year we are taking it to another level with the deployment of five Fastloc enabled satellite tags.“If they work, the data recovered will provide an insight into the shark’s behaviour which has been an enigma to marine biologists for decades.” stated Emmett Johnston the project coordinator.The tag deployments are the final part of a five month long programme of marine based community awareness funded by the Inishowen Development Partnership entitled ‘The Monster Munch Project’. Five lucky Primary School classes from Inishowen have named the tags and will be following their progress over a google maps viewer in a newly developed section of the website.For more details log onto www.baskingshark.ieUNIQUE BASKING SHARK RESEARCH BEGINS OFF COAST OF DONEGAL was last modified: May 10th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Basking SharksInishowenlast_img read more

first_imgLATEST: A DONEGAL man battered to death near his home in Glasgow at the weekend had been “picked on” by local gangs, neighbours said today.There is shock in Malin Head today after the murder of Willie McKeeney, 57, as he walked home from a chippie in the Scottish city early on Sunday.Today John Robertson, 43, a neighbour of the victim for more than a decade, said he was “absolutely shocked” by the incident. He said: “It is quite a quiet neighbourhood, we would never expect anything like this.”Another neighbour, who asked not to be named, said they thought Mr McKeeney had experienced trouble with gangs.He said: “I think he had had trouble with a group of young Asian men. They had slashed the tyres on his car.”Pollokshields councillor David Meikle said: “It is important that all aspects are looked into, including the possibility that it may have been a racially motivated crime.” Strathclyde Police said both suspects were of Asian appearance. One is 6ft 4in and thin-built, and was wearing a light-coloured hooded tracksuit top and light grey tracksuit bottoms. The second man was of average height and build and wore a navy tracksuit.At the Seaview Tavern in Malin Head where Willie’s partner Annmarie had once worked as a chef, there is shock at the murder.“People are just numb,” said one local man. “This is just dreadful news. Willie was a lovely fella who would never get involved in a fight.“His brothers and sisters are wonderful people and all our prayers and thoughts are with them at this time. God help them all.”One brother – Henry – who lives in Boston, was told the news of the murder yesterday.

first_imgA woman has told how she lost her engagement ring at a Donegal beach – only to find it again more than 18 months later!MLA Nichola Mallon thought she would never see the ring again after she lost it on a play park at the beach at Ballyliffin.After losing the ring on the beach she searched for hours into the evening and again the next morning raking the sand in the hope of finding her ring. Strangers even lent a helping hand with a metal detector only for their hunt to end without success.“I came home distraught and felt awful ever since,” she added.“I cannot believe that 18 months later a lady would find it, her sister would post it on Facebook and my ring and I reunited.“I can never thank Fiona Collins and her sister Amanda enough for finding it and for their honesty. “Never Give Up Hope,” she ended her post with.Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, the MLA explained how the good fortune was all down to the weather.The recent hot spell had burned away reeds leaving the ring to be found.“It probably never would have been found only for the weather,” the MLA added.Before leaving the area the family left messages with those that had helped in case the ring showed up and then all of a sudden a text came out of the blue. After a few messages husband Brendan was dispatched back to Ballyliffin to retrieve the ring.“We exchanged pictures and a description and even when she said ‘yes’ I didn’t believe it until it was back on my finger. I never got my hopes up.”Last week a little boy helped reunite lost wedding and engagement rings with their owners after he was on a treasure hunt in Donegal.Again social media came to the fore to bring a happy ending. Treasure hunter Oliver (8) reunites lost engagement and wedding rings with grateful owner“It just shows you to never give up hope,” added Nichola.“You hear these stories and you imagine it could happen to you, but you never believe it – you dream. We never replaced it.“I know it’s an engagement ring and they are sentimental to everyone. But I never had a say in picking it, Brendan did it all on his own and we thought it was lost for good.“I’m over the moon these things never happen to me.”She added: “I can’t thank Fiona and Amanda enough. It shows you the power of social media and that there are good honest people out there.”Woman finds lost engagement ring 18 months after losing it on Donegal beach was last modified: August 15th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BallyliffindonegalNicola Mallonringlast_img read more
