Dingle might be famous for Fungi the dolphin, but Achill Island can now boast not one but two friendly dolphins.
A local fisherman has revealed that the same two dolphins have followed his boat out to Achill Head every day for the past three years, and can be seen playing in the waters around his vessel.
In recent days, the fisherman has told staff at the Achill Experience Aquarium & Visitor Centre about his friends in the dolphin family, and staff expect huge interest from the public in the coming weeks and months.
Achill Aquarium is celebrating its second birthday today and has already welcomed some 40,000 visitors.
On Saturday next, Minister Michael Ring will officially open phase two of the Aquarium and Visitor Centre.
