Don't go abroad to see dolphins

I refer to the advice given by Tom Hall in the travel section entitled 'Swimming with dolphins' (Irish Independent, January 16).

While I commend the journalist for his sensitivity to disturbing dolphins by swimming with them, I condemn his advice to visit "Azores, Alaska and Spain" to view these intelligent mammals.

There are many populations of Bottlenose and Common dolphins around our coast, not to mention some sightings of the more rare Risso's dolphin.
