Having "flown" these majestic birds on a trip to Ireland in 2011, this was my second visit to the Ireland School of Falconry. This time I brought my 85-year-old mom and a cousin. And yes, my mom got gloved and flew a Harris Hawk like a pro ... thanks to the exquisite introduction and guidance of hands-on trainer Keelin, a passionate, extremely knowledgable raptor specialist. (Please see attached photos. The glorious gal with the cane is really a spry 85!! And she loved her "hawk walk!") What a fantastic visit we enjoyed at the Ireland School of Falconry near Ashford Castle! The cost is very reasonable and these birds are gentle and graceful on the outstretched arm. Anyone can do this. We highly recommend this stop for memories that will last you a lifetime! Thank you, Keelin. And thank you ISF!! Carl, Mildred and Nancy (from the U.S.)
