Delight as beach that vanished 33 years ago reappears almost overnight

Delight as beach that vanished 33 years ago leaving just rock pools behind reappears overnight

“The beach near the Irish village of Dooagh on Achill Island vanished in Spring storms of 1984 after waves washed away all the sand.

With nothing more than rock pools left behind, almost all the villages’ hotels, guesthouses and cafes shut down.

But hundreds of thousands of tons of sand were dumped on the beach over ten days in April, re-creating a stunning 300m long beach.”
