    Hi, I think I have found the Crohy Head Eire sign. OSI 1995 black and white. On a narrow strip of land, lined up to be seen from the sea, as intended, remains of box can be seen.

      Hi Oisin, yes, there was one located there and thanks to your note, I’ve found the remains of it. It will be posted up sometime in the next month.

    Hi I went to school in Brinalack Co Donegal and I’m 99% sure there was a lookout point up from the school. It would have had a great vantage point at being able to see any ships on the horizon.

    Hi. Great work you’ve done!! I’m having trouble locating the Baltimore sign on Google earth.. Would you have GPS co-ordinates for it I wonder?
    Best wishes,

    Can you let me know about Eire signs 58 – 59 – 60 – 61. I know that signs 58 -59 and 60 are in Achill but on the map its kind of confusing because 60 and 61 are as follows 61 in Achill and 60 in Belmullet, so my question is which is it, 60 in Achill, 61 in Belmullet or is it the other way around, can you let me know. Also can you email me as to where i can get more information on theses look-out’s , like who maned them and when the ceased operation, stuff like that

    There was an EIRE sign on our land at Dooyeher Carna Co Galway. The stones are still there, and we hope to restore the sign. I would love to know the ‘number’ associated with it. From memory I think there was a 5? I maybe wrong.

    hi
    thanks for the great information. I am involved with the look out post at Forlorn point in wexford, i notice a big gap on you map on the south east coast, is this because non were built or no records exist?

    As a child growing up in Bundoran my father told me about the EIRE signs and that there was one on Aughros Head on which the Bundoran Golf links is built. I recall being shown what was remaining of it and now 50 odd years later I have asked the Magh Ene Historical Society in Bundoran to investigate. I have not ever seen any reference to it and it was the article in the Donegal News 7 Sept which rekindled my interest in its existence. From memory it is on the seaside of the walkway behind the 8th green. Have you any information on this sign?

      Hello Declan,
      I am afraid I don’t. Basically I built the site to list the signs for which I could still find evidence. However, I don’t have a LOP listed for Bundoran either – so it would have fallen between 69 Mullaghmore and 70 St John’s Head. We have some signs which seem to be orphan signs however and I’d like to know more about them. This would not be the only sign lost to a golf course though; I’ve not been able to track down one on the Old Head of Kinsale either and I’m told one was built there.

        Thanks for that info. I should add that the sign is outside the golf course perimeter fence right on the cliff edge. I asked the local Magh Ene Historical group to investigate giving them the info I have from my youth. The sign is most likely overgrown. There was never an LOP at Bundoran

    Hi,

    There is also an EIRE sign on top of Doon Hill in Ballyconneely, Co Galway. It was constructed along with a watchtower during ‘The Emergency’.

    Regards,

    Mark

      HI Mark, yes, it’s EIRE 53 – I have it linked to Slyne Head. From what I can see the number is intact but I don’t really see the rest of the sign. Do you know if has been restored.
