Fungie The Dolphin Was Hurt During Storm Ophelia


Ex-Hurricane Ophelia has been and gone, but Ireland is still recovering from the damage.

And it didn’t just affect people, either – Fungie the Dingle dolphin was left with two gashes near his face. 

Facebook group Fungie Forever posted pics of the tourist favourite online, but explained that they’re not too worried about the marks. 

“The [cuts] do not look too serious and we know how fast dolphin skin heals,” they wrote. 

“We are quite positive this will just leave some scars.”
