They've been released at four sites in Munster.

21 White-tailed Eagles chicks have been released into the wild in the south of the country.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service says they took flight to bolster Ireland's existing population of the bird.

They were released into the wild at four Munster sites on the Shannon Estuary, Lough Derg, Waterford and in Killarney National Park.

Project site monitor on the reintroduction project of the eagles, Philip Buckley says they're vital to the culture and wildlife of the country
