Four young White-tailed eagles are to be released in North Kerry and West Limerick.

The Department of Heritage, Culture and the Ghaeltacht says ten young eagles are to be released across Munster in a scheme to bolster the population in Ireland.

The White-tailed eagle, which is the country’s largest indigenous bird of prey, has been the focus of a National Parks and Wildlife Service project in recent years.

During this second phase, four young eagles will be released shortly on the Shannon estuary in Tarbert and Glin.

Minister Malcolm Noonan says the project is an example of hands-on conservation in action.
