Ocean returns beach to island near Ireland

Storms took the beach in 1984. Heavy tides this spring returned the sand.

“A beach that was swept away more than 30 years ago from a remote island off the west coast of Ireland has reappeared after thousands of tons of sand were deposited on top of the rocky coastline.

“The 300 metre beach near the tiny village of Dooagh on Achill Island vanished in 1984 when storms stripped it of its sand, leaving nothing more than a series of rock pools.

“But after high spring tides last month, locals found that the Atlantic Ocean had returned the sand.”

Probably climate change. Evil, evil climate change.
