« BackFungie still thrilling thousands in Dingle after 32 years

Even as a senior citizen, Fungie the Dolphin remains one of the county’s biggest draws.

Having first arrived in Dingle Harbour in 1983, the wild bottle-nose dolphin attracts up to 100,000 visitors a year.

In today’s Sunday Independent photographs taken by local residents Jeannine Massett and Rudi Schamart show that Fungie is still thrilling visitors today with his spectacular jumps.
