Rare drone footage posted to Twitter by @atlanticwhales of a whale feeding near Courtmacsherry has gone viral.

The whale in question, known as Boomerang, is one of Europe's best known humpbacks.

The drone footage was captured by Sean Maxwell of Atlantic Whale & Wildlife Tours.

Fianna Fáil TD Christopher O'Sullivan was also on board and managed to capture the moment on his phone.

It's been a boom season for whale watchers with great sightings happening all summer especially in the Seven Heads area.
