taken 3 months ago, near to Ballyhillin, Donegal, Ireland

80 Eire at Malin Head
80 Eire at Malin Head
The word 'Éire' can be seen on a section of land jutting out from the mainland at Banba's Crown; it is presented in large letters that were formed from placing stones together to form the letters. This was done during the Second World War to signify to overflying planes that they were passing Ireland and that Ireland was neutral. The “80” appears to be a more recent addition as it was not present in January 2002 when John O'Kane took C3959 : Ireland's Most Northerly Point. See LinkExternal link for further information.
