Des Lavelle – In Conversation February 7th, 2018

On In Conversation this week, Joe McGill travels to Valentia Island to meet Des Lavelle who is a veteran of many years of the Skellig islands and is the son, grandson, and great grandson of a lighthouse family. Author, historian, diver, photographer, lecturer and ornithologist, he ran regular tours of the islands during the Summer. His intimate knowledge of the islands, his passion for island photography and his live slide presentations about the Skelligs have taken him on lecture tours all over Europe and to about thirty cities of the USA.
