The hundreds of people living around Lough Derg and the thousands who visited Mountshannon to see the first chicks hatched in over 100 years will be devastated to hear this news today. There is an individual in Ballinderry Co. Tipperary who should hang his/her head in shame. The hard work that has been put in by The Golden Eagle Trust to reintroduce these amazing birds is tarnished when somebody kills one. The two chicks that hatched last year in Mountshannon went through so much to survive and fledge and were seen regularly flying over Lough Derg and surrounding countryside. It’s a sad sad day when some trigger happy individual decides to shoot one of Norways and natures gifts to the people of Ireland. http://i.imgur.com/LnWr0cl.jpg
