God Has Second Thoughts About Deleting Beach

By Gary Cutlack on at

God has decided that the beach in the Irish village of Dooagh on Achill Island looks better with sand, so, with a wave of a hand, he scattered a few thousand tonnes of sand back over the rocks and now the people have a beach for it always to be too cold to sit on again.

The beach in question lost its sand in a "storm" in the winter of 1984/5, and has been a featureless but still quite pretty lump of rock ever since. But that changed some time during the Easter week when the sand came back after 33 years away. Maybe God should spend a bit less time tinkering with Irish beach sand level setting sliders and sort out more important things, eh?

Sean Molloy from Achill Tourism said: "Before it disappeared, the beach had been there for as long as living memory, almost continuously, until 1984-85. It's so nice for the villagers to have their beach back. It is an incredible example of the force and power of nature and how the coast can change in a matter of days." [ITV News]

This writhing bundle of joy is a “Hercules beetle pupa,” which is a weird name for a dog, but okay.
