This is good news. 13 Golden Eagles brought to Donegal from Scotland last year are about to enter their second winter here. Hopefully in a few years they will start to breed, which would be the first time a pair of of eagles has bred in Ireland since 1912. So now, when can we see the re-introduction of the animal that was once Ireland's largest land predator - Canis Lupus - which went extinct here sometime in the 18th century, largely as a result of the efforts of top ten Briton himself, Oliver Cromwell?
