Stellar line-up: Eagles set to soar at theme park
Tayto Park is now home to nine birds of prey that are likely to keep visitors flying through the gates.
The Co Meath theme park and zoo welcomed a Steller's Sea Eagle, the largest and heaviest sea eagle on the planet. It also has the biggest wing span of all the eagles.
The attraction is the only place in Ireland where this type of eagle can be found. The theme park is also home to a majestic American Bald Eagle and the only Verreaux's Eagle in the country.
A spokesperson for Tayto Park said: "Tayto Park is committed to conservation both locally and globally. Tayto park supports the Golden Eagle Trust Limited, which is a charity dedicated to conservation and restoration of native birds, including the barn owl."
