Clare dolphin attacks fourth swimmer in a month as Dusty protects her patch
Dusty the Dolphin has gone bad!
Locals say the three-metre long mammal has been responsible for injuring a number of people over the past two years, with several of those being hospitalised with significant injuries. She struck a 40-year-old woman in the abdomen earlier this month.

In response, lifeguards now fly the red danger flag any time the dolphin enters the area. The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group has also erected warning posters at Doolin pier.

IWDG coordinator Dr Simon Berrow said: “It is our policy to discourage people swimming with whales and dolphins in Ireland. “We’ve drafted a poster recommending people do not swim with Dusty, but if they must, then they should respect her as a wild dolphin and not grab, lunge or chase after her. If she shows aggressive behaviour or is boisterous they should leave the water.”
