Merlin the Seal, now you are Free!

We (Steve, Karen, Abby and Aoife Ward) rescued Merlin from Garrylucas beach 2 weeks ago.  He had a bad abscess on his poor face when we found him. We contacted the Dingle Seal Sanctuary, sent them a photo of him from the beach and they said he needed immediate attention as he wouldn't survive a night on the beach. It took 3 of us to wrestle him into a fish box with a large rug (from our friend Dermot who lives up the road and eventually off we went to meet the rescue team who met us half way to Dingle. 2 weeks later Merlin made a full recovery and was released by Abby and Aoife on the beach this Tuesday.
