Fungie spotted in Dingle Peninsula despite reports he was missing

Dingle Sea Safari has said that reports yesterday of Fungie being missing were not true.

Kerry's most popular resident was reported missing yesterday and according to the Dingle Peninsula and Hunting group the dolphin had not been seen since Monday.

As the Irish Examiner reports, in a Facebook post this morning, Dingle Sea Safari Tours said the reports were not to be believed and that Fungie was spotted yesterday morning by a local fishing boat.

The post said: "We can assure you we check on Fungie's wellbeing daily, from Fishermen, Fungie boats, and all his other friends and Fungie was alongside one of the Dingle Fishing boats yesterday morning.

"Thank you for all the texts emails phone calls and messages and we are sorry for any upset caused."

One of Kerry's most famous residents, Fungie, was reportedly missing yesterday.

According to the Dingle Peninsula Fishing and Hunting group, the friendly dolphin was last seen on Monday.

Dingle Boat tours, along with two other boats, conducted a long search of the coastline with no appearance from the missing mammal.

On a post to their Facebook page 'Fungi Forever' said they cannot give any more information but they are hoping for a miracle.
