Experience real-life stories of our underwater world as Ken O’Sullivan talks about his life and experiences as an underwater cameraman, documentary filmmaker and ocean conservationist in Ireland’s Atlantic waters.
Ken will show you his amazing photos and videos, capturing his close encounters. From freediving with blue whales the largest animal ever to have lived, to filming sharks, dolphins, and the magical underwater world around Ireland and his family’s 250 year history on Fenit Island, Co. Kerry. After the show, Ken will stay for an engaging Q&A session,
This event is open to everyone but may be of special interest to Junior Cycle Students as material from Ken’s last series is now on the Junior Cycle Geography and Business Studies programme. Ireland’s Deep Atlantic is the first documentary to be used in this way and the platform has now been built for RTÉ to host many more publicly funded documentaries for the secondary school education curriculum.
After the talk, the Q&A session will allow the audience a unique opportunity to meet Ken and gain first hand knowledge.
