Leader of the Loch Ness and Morar Project Adrian Shine visits Dublin
Tomorrow (Wednesday, May 22) at 11am, at The Grayson, 41 St. Stephen’s Green, Carlingford Lough Ferry celebrates the launch of a two-minute promotional video highlighting the natural beauty of Carlingford Lough.
The video features Adrian Shine, the renowned naturalist and leader of the Loch Ness and Morar Project who was invited to Carlingford Lough by the ferry service. There, Shine explored ancient myths, legends and Irish folklore.
His quest is to discover mythological serpent like creatures known as horse eels that are believed to lie within the waters of this historic lough – given its current name by the Vikings. Shine will visit Dublin for Carlingford Lough Ferry’s launch tomorrow and to promote his recent research and interest in Irish folklore. He is also renowned in his field for using the Loch Ness controversy as a vehicle for interpreting the dynamics and diversity of deep lakes.
Providing up to 30 sailings per day during peak months, the Carlingford Lough Ferry is a new cross border vehicular service, operating all-year round (Greencastle to Greenore). It links Ireland’s Ancient East to the picturesque Kingdom of Mourne while taking in the natural beauty of Carlingford Lough itself and the Cooley and Mourne Mountains.
