Mick O’Callaghan – Schull, West Cork.


‘My most cherished memory happened when I was twenty-one years old. I was out potting for lobsters and crabs with a local fisherman on a flat calm summer’s day. We were in Dunmanus Bay. As we were steaming up the bay to collect a string of thirty pots, I saw what looked like a huge wave rolling in from the open Atlantic. It stretched the full width of the bay. But the water turned out to be a massive pod of dolphins, and soon, we were surrounded by hundreds of them. They swam with the boat and I sat at the end of the bow to watch in amazement. I cherish this memory, as I have never seen the likes of it since.’
