A fantastic bit of history! #explorelivinghistory #doolinferryco #ww2 #wildatlanticway

Doolin Ferry
Bit of #Burren history for you on a rainy Tuesday ✈️-
In World War 2 Ireland was a neutral country but the government at the time was afraid that the country would be bombed by mistake. To avoid this they set out to build huge signs into the landscape to show approaching planes that they were over Ireland. All the markers have a number and the letters 'EIRE' which means ‘Ireland’ in Gaelic. Today we took a hike up to our nearest marker EIRE 48 at #blackhead on the BURREN coast. As you can see from the video- this one has stood the test of time. It would have been white washed to stand out during the war. The numbers proved to be very handy for American planes traveling from USA to Europe as they were used for navigation later in the war. Not so neutral after all 🧐😄! There are also two markers on the largest #aranisland of Inis Mór .
