Pillbox at Bridge on the Boyne, Co. Meath
World War 2 era pillbox - built to defend against German invasion, you might assume. But it's on the south side of the river...
In fact this one and approximately 40 others between the coast and Navan, were constructed to defend against an expected invasion by British forces from the north.
