#MARITIME FESTIVALS - The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG) will have a stand at the Maritime Matters Festival in Hook Head, Co Wexford this bank holiday weekend from 5-7 May.

Representing the IWDG are Deirdre Slevin and Paddy Roche, who will be on hand to present photos of recent whale activity off the Wexford coast, as well as giving the opportunity to look out for whales and dolphins from the watch tower.

Hook Head has already witnessed a wide range of cetacean activity in 2012, with the likes of fin whales, humpback whales, minke whales, common and Risso's dolphins, harbour porpoise and basking sharks visiting the waters of the 'Sunny Southeast'.

The annual Maritime Matters Festival will also feature displays from The Irish Coast Guard, Irish Water Safety and the Irish Seal Sanctuary, as well as displays and manoeuvres on the water by the Irish Marine Rescue Services.
