A seal pup has been rescued by three young women after being left stranded on a Bundoran beach.
The seal, known as Silky, was spotted on Tullan Strand in Bundoran before being spotted.
Twin sisters Phillipa and Jennifer Locke (20) and their friend Rihannon Kerrigan (20) found the animal after spending several hours searching a two-mile stretch on the popular stretch.
Phillipa, who volunteers for Seal Rescue Ireland, told the Independent.ie: “He looked in a bad way, very weak and small for his age.
“His mother might still be around as there were tracks from a bigger seal too, but she probably got swept up by the waves.”
The three-month-old seal was treated last night by a local vet.
