Move over Fungi! Dolphins filmed swimming off the Donegal coast

Faster than lightning…

IT’S NOT JUST Dingle that receives regular visits from beautiful dolphins.

As this footage from Malin Head Harbour on the Inishowen Peninsula shows, the North Atlantic gang are fond of heading towards Irish shores too.

According to VisitInishowen.com the rise in leisure boating in the area has lead to an increase in reports of sightings of whales and dolphins. Porpoises, Bottlenose Dolphins, Risso’s Dolphins, Common Dolphins, Minke Whales and occasionally Orcas are spotted in the area.

This footage was filmed in the same area in June of this year:
