The largest annual simultaneous whale watch will kick off later today at headlands across the country.
The event is celebrating the 16th anniversary of the declaration of Irish waters as a whale and dolphin sanctuary.
Padraig Whooley, from the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group, has said that the chances of seeing a whale or dolphin are quite good.
