This is one mammal who is enjoying the fine weather anyway.

Sláine NíChathalláin captured this spectacular video of Fungi leaping around in Dingle harbour this evening.

Under the tagline 'This better break the Internet' posted this spectacular 19-second video that is sure to get you in the Bank Holiday spirit.

The friendly solitary male bottlenose dolphin was first spotted in 1983 in Dingle harbour by late lighthouse keeper Paddy Ferriter. Experts admit they are amazed the 300kg mammal has remained there ever since, as they say it's not consistent with dolphin behaviour.

As long as he continues to put on performances like this then people will continue to flock to the Kerry town
