Despite a recent incident in which a White Tailed Eagle was found poisoned, people still flock to the mountains of County Kerry to see these spectacular birds.

Over the last 2 years, 35 eaglets(15 in 2007 and 20 in 2008) have been released into the wild in and near Killarney National Park.  The eagle chicks were collected under licence from nests in Norway and flown to Kerry.

Glencar House is the perfect base to explore the mountains and forests in search of a glimpse of the Eagles.

All the birds have been fitted with coloured tags on their wings and carry radio-transmitters that allow them to be tracked in the wild. The chicks are being reared with minimum human contact and being monitored closely by teams of experts from the National Parks & Wildlife Service and The Golden Eagle Trust Ltd.
