Yesterday, 22nd October, a pod of approximately 25 bottlenose dolphins was spotted at Slaudeen, Dingle Harbour, in the exact same waters as Fungie, the Dingle dolphin, is normally seen.
Fungie was not seen the whole time the dolphins were around. It would appear as though this pod of dolphins has been seen for the week around Dingle Bay, travelling as far east as Inch. Presumably this is the same pod that regularly frequents the bay. It may also be surmised, without much certainty, that they could be Fungie's original pod as they would be the largest pod that would regularly visit the bay, possibly travelling down from the larger residential pod in the Shannon.
