50 dolphins filmed swimming in deserted waters off Achill Island


A pod of some 50 bottlenose dolphins has been filmed swimming off Dooagh Bay, on Achill Island. Such dolphins are regular visitors to Achill, but usually in much smaller numbers, says filmmaker Seán Molloy. Bottlenose dolphins can measure up top 12 feet in length. Other visitors to the island's coast include basking shark, minke whales and common dolphins.
