Over the weekend a whale was found stranded on Cross Beach in Mayo.

A group of local surfers went to the animals aid and helped it to re-float.

Though the animal was most likely in a poor condition after its ordeal it was seen swimming away.

This remarkable video, filmed by Fionnuala Carter, shows the moment they manage to get the calf free.
