Sammy the seal has been making the national headlines again after a picture of him being chased out of the fish shop was posted on Social Media yesterday.

Derek Byrne who was visiting Wicklow Town captured Sammy the Seal being marched back into the water after he went to The Fishman’s on Wednesday afternoon.

Sammy has become a celebrity in the seaside town, but Fishman Alan Hegarty said “While it is fun to have Sammy coming to visit us, he is a wild animal so it is advisable to keep your distance while he is out of the water.”
