Bray Head gorse fire uncovers WWII ÉIRE sign
An Garda Siochana air support unit unveiled an old WW2 demarkation sign which was used to
show airmen from both allied and German forces that they were flying over the neutral territory
of Ireland (EIRE). Most of these Eire signs etched out on rock are common on the west coast but less so on the east.
A Garda Air Support Unit crew spotted that the fire on Bray Head has revealed an “EIRE” sign dating from the Second World War.
We see these around the coastline but haven’t seen this before. pic.twitter.com/I6cwIrIori
