The car was gobbled up by one of the highest tides of the year.
Of course it isn’t the first time it has happened on the golden sands at Rossnowlagh.
And it probably won’t be the last.
As one local man said afterwards: “That’s one way of dipping your headlights.”
The incident however baffled many.
Paul Diver, owner of the Sandhouse Hotel and Marine Spa, told us: “This has happened many times over the years.
“It’s also a high tide this evening.”
Last Saturday a local man had to tow another car out of the water after a motorist dozed off whilst parked on the beach.
