Coast to Spirit: Irish Beach disappears after a brief re-emergence of World News

It came, it was enchanted and now it has gone again: The Irish beach, which surfaced in 2017 after 34 years of absence from the county of Mayo and attracted worldwide attention has disappeared again.

Winter storms have swept away the sand of Dooagh, Achill Island, with only rocks and a reminder that nature can take them.

"It was a series of storms," ​​said Seamus Molloy of Achill Tourism on Monday. "The beach was hit hard during storm Ali in September. Some giant rollers banging off the shore, huge water walls just falling down on the beach. "

Molloy had suspected that the beach was slipping. "The sand was in the river, you could see it. Since Christmas, I've watched it most days. It happened last month – just washed away. "
