The whale was spotted by members of the public on Wednesday, swimming near Dublin Port.

“We’re not sure why he ended up there but when we seen him, it was clear he was in ill health and disorientated. You would usually spot fin whales in deeper water further down the east coast in Co Waterford. He was a long way from his hunting ground,” said Mr Flanagan.

He said the whale was regarded as a hazard to ships in the area so its remains have been towed further out to sea where they are expected to sink.
