A rare sighting of an Orca has been recorded off the County Kerry coast.

Photographer Richard Creigh captured the killer whale on camera while on the Blasket Islands Eco Marine Tour on Monday.

The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group have asked members of the public to keep their eyes peeled for more sightings of the male orca, known as John Coe.

He was  first photographed off the Scottish Hebrides back in 1983.
