The beach road behind the dunes has gone (as well as the dunes) in the last storm or Valentines night at South Milton Sands near Thurlestone, the successive storms have taken away the dunes built up by the National Trust at vast expense, they reinforced them with telegraph poles which have washed up on a number of neighbouring beaches.

Top shot is really something
Biggest wave ever recorded in Irish Waters was reported south of the Kinsale Gas Platform
