Huffington Post Does Ireland have its own Loch Ness monster? A film crew shooting a short movie on Ireland’s Lough Foyle, near County Donegal, took this video of what appears to be a large creature swimming beneath the surface of the tidal estuary. The footage was uploaded to YouTube on April 15 with the title “Monster in Lough Foyle!” and has received more than 170,000 views at the time of this writing. In the video’s description, filmmaker Conall Melarkey (not to be confused with “malarkey”) notes that whales have been sighted in Lough Foyle before, so it’s probable that the mysterious creature has a perfectly ordinary explanation. The Belfast Telegraph accused the student filmmakers of setting up the Lough Foyle video.”When viewed at higher definitions, there are several tethering cables seen off the second boat,” the newspaper wrote.
I am calling a hoax on this one, the “creature” looks one hundred percent towed, and does not seem to be swimming naturally. It looks like these filmmakers thought it would be funny to create a hoax video while shooting their short film, towed an object through the water with a boat off screen, and tried to sell it as an unknown sea creature. Even if this video is not a hoax, there are several known creatures that this could easily be, and it could easily be a case of mistaken identity. I feel as though a whale, as suggested by Huffington Post, likely would have taken a breath before diving but there are several large pelagic fish that could be the culprit, which have been seen this far inland. An interesting video, but I see a hoax here, but know that there are unknown creatures in the ocean. I expect some amazing discoveries from the deep in the coming years due to new technology, however, this one looks fabricated to this blogger.
