January 7 1974 AD:Casablanca Deposited In Balbriggan

Freak high winds from Africa dump tonnes of Sahara Desert sand on the south and east of the country. A particularly strong gust deposits the North African city of Casablanca in Balbriggan in North County Dublin. The occurrence goes unnoticed by natives of both locales for three weeks, although many Casablancans do admit to feeling “Colder and somewhat ripped off”.
