A beach in Ireland has reappeared after washing away 30 years ago. In 1984 there was a storm at Achill Island that washed away the sandy beach and left behind just rocks. But lately, the sand has been returning.
Sean Molloy, the manager at Achill Tourism spoke out about the change.
“In April when we had that cold snap over Easter, the wind was coming in from the north. It was very constant and steady and it must have transported eroded material in from elsewhere.”
The area used to be a big tourist spot, but it lost that pull when the sand from the beach went away as well. Now the possibility is coming up again and the town hopes to restore beach access points from the village. The beach has a variety of historical significance which adds to its charm.
