'After almost five months of giving her tender loving care, the latest sea turtle rescued in Kerry is to head for Warmer Spanish waters'. Dingle Oceanworld Aquarium, writes Tom MacSweeney, says that the turtle, brought to the Aquarium “for some much-needed care when she was found by divers barely able to move, here in Kerry waters this Easter, is starting her journey home.”

The Aquarium staff named her ‘Sally’ and after months of TLC she recovered.

“We are delighted to say she has made a fantastic recovery. So it is with heavy but happy hearts that we wave her off home in the hands of the Irish Navy who are going to take her back to the warm Spanish waters. She will be leaving from Cobh on October 6th.”
