How To Say – “Fox” in Irish Gaelic (VIDEO)

Although Ireland has fewer plant and animal species than Britain or other parts of Europe (because it became an island very shortly after the last Ice Age ~10.000 years ago) you can still take some great photos of wildlife. Ireland’s habitats are diverse and include farmland, broadleaf, mixed forests, coastal environments and more.

What about animals? Well, there are a few dozen animals native to Ireland such as the Irish hare, red deer and pine marten, but also more common ones like the red fox, hedgehog and badger. If you’re planning to visit the coastal areas of Ireland, you’ll also have a chance to see turtles, sharks, whales and dolphins.
