Hats off to this gentleman who saved this young dolphin on a beach near Belmullet [Co Mayo] on Saturday. After several attempts he managed to coax the dolphin back to sea. Took this photo while photographing a wedding. Great man and well done.
Fergus Finlay and Dusty the dolphin in Inis Oirr
The Herald reports:
The former Labour adviser was swimming around Inis Oirr harbour with his daughter and two grandchildren when the dolphin, known as Dusty, head-butted him full force in the upper thighs.
The dolphin was known for erratic attacks when she was in Co Clare, and since a move to Inis Oirr last year signs have been put up around the harbour warning swimmers to be careful.
“She came straight at me and sort of rammed me with her head into what I’d politely call my upper thighs and knocked me off my feet,” Mr Finlay told the Herald.

Czech-born County Clare resident George Karbus is the overall winner of the British
Irish Czech Banner Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition for this photo of a bottlenose dolphin.
“The photograph was taken in the most intimidating and surf-heavy spot on the Coast of Northern Ireland. I encountered this playful dolphin that suddenly started to surf the deep tube inside the waves. Each time the dolphin got into the wave, I dived underneath, held my breath and waited for the moment when he would swish through a silver barrel close enough to my lens. Water visibility is always very limited in Ireland, and I was very lucky to get a shot like this”
