A possible sighting of Fungie has been reported off the coast of Cork.
The Dingle dolphin has been missing from his home since November, with fears that he may be gone for good.
However footage has emerged of a dolphin bearing Fungie’s resemblance interacting with boats off the Old Head of Kinsale.
The video shows the animal playing and interacting with people on the boat
The footage is currently being reviewed by wildlife groups.
