WATCH: Captivating pod of up to 30 dolphins surprise fisherman off Achill Head

Peter Byrne got quite a surprise when a pod of up to 30 dolphins showed up by Achill Head, Co Mayo.

Peter spoke to

'The boat is a lake boat that's usually on Lough Mask, in Ballinrobe and is my own.... we were out for a days pleasure fishing when the pod arrived! Messed up the fishing but was well worth it to view such a spectacular sight!'

The pod swam along and close to the boat and 'were quite happy to be fed mackerel from the boat.'
