A GoFund me campaign has been set up to help wildlife affected by the recent oil spill near Athlone.

The aim is to raise €2,000 to provide care for Swans and other animals who have been covered in oil due to the incident.

12 juvenile swans have been rescued so far and are being cared for by local authorities.

Investigations are still ongoing to determine the cause.
