We have heard about rivers and lakes disappearing overnight.
But this time, it’s an Irish beach washed away 33 years ago that suddenly reappeared overnight following a freak tide.
The sand at Dooagh, Achill Island, was washed away by storms in 1984, leaving only rocks and rock pools. But after a freak tide around Easter this year, hundreds of tonnes of sand were deposited around the area where the beach once stood, recreating the old 300-metre stretch of golden sand.
Some big storms destroyed the beach. Then in April, the cold snap over Easter with strong northerly winds has transported sand in from elsewhere.
You can imagine how delighted are locals to have the beach back!
