The discovery was made a few days after the storm had passed at the aptly named Forlorn Point, on the southeast coast of the country. While that part of Ireland had missed the worst of the storm, it was still hit by massive waves in the wake of Ophelia. And these unearthed something truly shocking.
Along a walkway close to the sea, ramblers spotted some skeletal remains. At first they were worried that Storm Ophelia had claimed another victim. Thankfully, though, that wasn’t the case. In fact, the storm had revealed a body that could well have been buried for a thousand years.
