EIRE74 – Croghy Head

(Conor Corbett)

This sign has recently been restored and I do not have an aerial photograph of it yet. However, I have received a number of photographs of the restored sign, and the work in progress to restore it for which I am very grateful to the three photographers concerned whose names you’ll find under their photographs.

A couple of people have let me know that Sign 64 has been restored and I’ve received a (non-aerial photograph) of it. It isn’t on the aerial maps yet although I will put the location of it on the map of the signs.

I want to think Liz, Karen and Aidan who all emailed me to let me know about this.

Malin Head has been restored since these aerial photographs were done. You can read a report on the restoration here – the restoration was done in 2015. It looks beautiful, far better than it did when I saw it as a child.

Also Atlas Obscura has written up the renovation of this sign here.

Added August 2018 from the Conor Corbett collection of photos:

Two signs were built on Slieve League, of which all that remains is this part next to a carpark.

This sign is almost impossible to see on the aerial photographs but it has been renovated at some point.
