Hidden WW2 sign revealed after gorse fire
I hadn't realised they had done so many.A World War Two-era landmark that had disappeared from sight has been rediscovered along the Irish coast after a wildfire scorched the ground.
The aerial sign was spotted at Bray Head, County Wicklow, by the Garda (Irish police) Air Support Unit as they flew over the area after the blaze.
The huge letters spell out the word Éire, which means Ireland in the Irish language.
Over 80 Éire signs were dotted around the coast in WW2 to warn bombers they were flying over a neutral country.
