I saw an article saying that the Irish coastline has lost up to two metres in soil in various areas during the Winter storms. A couple of weeks ago, Siobhan was employing her waterproof camera. The shot below of Rob McFadden gives a good view on the right – his left – of the battering the cliff in Myrtleville has taken from the storms.
When you look at it from the sea, it does look like there’s a good bit of soil gone there.
I also came across this site from UCC on coastal erosion, which specifically references the Myrtleville cliffs as susceptible to erosion.
Don’t just take my word for it – go down swimming and look back in at it 🙂
