Killian and Katie McLaughlin : Wild Ireland

Topics covered : animal welfare, conservation, having a baby during Covid restrictions, heart condition, major surgery, scar, healing. 


In this episode I speak to Killian and Katie McLaughlin who run a wildlife sanctuary in Donegal called ‘Wild Ireland’.

They met in college when they were both studying law and they’re now married and are parents to Rígan who’s almost 2.

In this conversation we talk about their love of animals, their passion for what they do and their plans for the future.

We also talk about the highs and lows of the past 2 years, including having a baby during Covid restrictions and Katie having to undergo heart surgery.

They’re an amazing couple who have had so much to deal with but are stronger than ever today.

* Series 2 of ‘Return of the Wild : The Bearman of Buncrana’ will be broadcast on RTE in the coming months so keep an eye out for it.
