BERE Island will feature on national television this week, as RTÉ cameras have travelled to Castletownbere to speak to fishers as they mull over whether to decommission their boats for good or not.

The story will feature as part of the Ear To The Ground programme, which will also showcase Ireland's first walking route for horses - or bridleway - along the Beara Way.

The episode will air this Thursday on RTÉ One at 7pm, with a repeat scheduled for 1.10pm on Sunday, February 12th.

The future of the West Cork island will also be covered in this week's Southern Star, where we are focusing on the housing situation which is key to the survival of the islands.
