Achill Island beach disappears again after storms

A beach on Achill Island in Co Mayo has disappeared again after it reappeared in 2017.

Dooagh beach was gone for more than 30 years when it came back into view in April 2017.

However, recent storms this winter have washed the sand away again leaving only rocks and boulders.

The reappearance of the beach was covered internationally by news outlets and increased tourism and employment on the island.
