This grey seal is one of several "tame" animals that hang around the harbour of Kilmore Quay, scavenging fish scraps from anglers and trawler crew. The seal probably lives on the Saltee Islands.

I photographed them two years ago, too

  1. I doubt it’s the same one; there are many seals around east and southeast coast that hang about harbours. Skerries, for instance, has several seals.
