Those involved in the Moville Light house swim got a pleasant surprise today. A pod of Dolphins came and joined them as they swam to the lighthouse and back. They were right up close to them and in amongst them.

One girl said that she saw something move and took off her goggles to have a look. She was shocked when she saw a fin in the waters of Lough Foyle. She said she must have looked terrified as two other nearby female swimmers laughed and told here they were dolphins.

Most of the swimmers saw the dolphins as well as those on the pier watching the race. I’m told that there is film footage of it and we hope to show that in the next few days.

If anyone has any pictures send them on to us.

Here’s a short video of the dolphins from Lee Doherty of Inish Adventures. See Dolphins at Lighthouse Swim
