« BackFungie much improved following propeller injury

Fungie GashFungie the Dingle dolphin appears to be on the mend.

There were concerns for world famous dolphin yesterday when photos emerged of him with a deep gash to his fin and side.

It is thought the wounds were caused by a propeller.

According to Jeannine Massett and Rudi Schmart of ‘Fungie Forever’, who visit the dolphin on a daily basis, the wound appears to be healing.

They said Fungie, who has been resident in Dingle Harbour since 1983, was in good spirits yesterday, with the redness of the wound much reduced.
