We've used to seeing videos, photos and hearing stories about Fungi the famous dolphin in Dingle but it looks as if he might have a rival on the West Coast of Ireland.

This female dolphin was spotted on Inis Oirr, one of the Aran Islands, being incredibly friendly with the divers. The video was taken today by Elaine Farrell.

Who knew that dolphins like to have their bellies tickled in the same way dogs do? 

What an amazing sight to see.

What a friendly lady she is...

This could drive some serious tourism to the area if she continues to hang around...
