June 2013. Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG) has received several reports of a pair of killer whales comprising a large bull with a smaller animal (probably a female) off the west coast of Ireland.

The sightings, one off off Malin Beg, Co. Donegal on 18th June at 18:00 and others just over 200 miles away off Mizen Head, Co. Cork on 11th June and the following day off Slea Head, Co. Kerry 12th, it is a reasonable to assume that these sightings are of the same animals.
