Monty Halls' Great Irish Escape
Marine biologist Monty Halls returns to his first love, the sea, when he spends six months on the wild west coast of Ireland helping a whale and dolphin group. Based in the picturesque village of Roundstone in Connemara, Monty’s ready to jump into action if an orca whale or pod of dolphins threaten to become stranded on the shoreline. When not on rescue missions or scientific expeditions, this man of many talents immerses himself in local life, including hair-raising fishing trips and lively guitar sessions at the local bar - often starring Monty himself!
