As if we didn't have enough to be worried about in 2020, the nation was thrown into panic this week when Fungie the dolphin went missing for two days.

Concerns for the famous Dingle dolphin's welfare were raised by the Fungie Forever social media page, and searches of the harbour and peninsula ensued.

Luckily, Fungie was found to be alive and well on Thursday. A local fisherman spotted him swimming alongside his boat, saying he was "one thousand per cent certain" it was him.

Donal O'Donoghue and Caitlin McBride discussed this story and more in The Week Trending.
