Éire Markings By Drone

Drone photographer Conor Corbett (aka Éirespace) travelled the coasts of Ireland to capture drone photos of any of the remaining Éire markings from Workd War II. The 82 markings were created by volunteers of the Coastal Watch Service to help aircraft distinguish neutral Ireland from Northern Ireland. Many of the markings have been restored and some have resurfaced, such as the No.8 Bray which was revealed by a gorse fire in 2018. Treasa Lynch created the website eiremarkings.org to track the status of any remaining markings.
