I am a student of English and History and am approaching my final year of third level education at the University of Limerick. I am composing this email in accordance to your video which claims to capture an unknown creature in Muckross lake.
I have many relatives in Killarney and the surrounding villages and I have spent many summers by the lakes fishing. The video which you have uploaded, as intriguing and entertaining as it is, I feel does not paint the true picture of the animals that dwell in the lake. I have seen them myself on several occasions in a much more secluded lake. The lake of which I am referring to is Lough Bran.
From what I have seen the animal is much like what you have described, its constitution is very similar to that of a large eel approximately 18 feet long. Its back is a dark muddy colour from its head to its tail and its underbelly is milky white. It has two short stumpy appendages sprouted from the top of its head. I do not believe that the Loch Ness monster still exists nor, if it did, it is a plesiosaur-like animal. I believe this creature is some form of large eel or snail that can travel over land from lake to river to lake as it pleases.
My relatives and I all agree that this animal me be dwindling away for a reason we do not know. I feel that if a major effort is not made to try to document these animals once and for all, then soon our chance will be gone. I hope that this email will be of some use to you. I am not sure if the footage of the Muckross lake shows one of these elusive animals or if is simply birds but I do know that they do live in the lakes and that they are still there, for how long more, I do not know.
