Dead Dolphin Washed Up On Courtown Beach Following String Of Similar Incidents

Just one week after a washed-up 14ft tiger shark emerged on a Wexford coastline, two dolphins have since washed up along Wexford’s beaches…

The incident gained national and international media coverage, with scientists believing that this was the first official record of this rare species in Irish waters.

Following this, a dolphin washed up on St Margaret’s beach on Easter Monday.

Since then, in a separate incident, another dolphin has washed up on the Courtown beach in North Wexford.

After his stroll on the beach, Justin Finn shared pictures to Wexford Weekly which can be seen below.
