WATCH: More amazing footage of basking sharks in Ardmore

They’re obviously fond of the place.

Earlier this month, we brought you footage captured by the folks at Ardmore Adventures of a close-up encounter with a basking shark in the seaside town in Waterford.

With the weather Gods smiling down upon us, JOE reader Brian Dowling took a trip to Ardmore on Sunday afternoon, when 11 basking sharks could be spotted in the water at the same time as a group had taken a few kayaks out for a spin.

It’s not quite as up close and personal as the encounter with the basking shark from earlier this month, but it’s still pretty spectacular stuff; it’s a good job Brian had the drone in the car.
