#CoastalNotes - A beach on Achill Island lost to storms 33 years ago has returned after a freak Easter tide.
And locals at Dooagh are celebrating the return of their 300-metre sandy strand that in more recent years has been bare rock, as the Guardian reports.
It’s believed a wintry cold snap in mid April, with winds from the north, led to the surprise sandy deposit — one that’s already boosted tourism in the area, part of the Wild Atlantic Way coastal route.
