Amazing job. I'll ask an obvious question, how did they find it? Are their original locations documented somewhere?

Yes Strum. They are all marked on a map but had overgrown etc. When the fire was on Bray Head last year some local lads repaired and repainted No 8 and then a group of local Tidy town Dalkey people with various historians located No 7 and did that wonderful job. Hours of very tedious labour.

Thanks Rocker, yes I know over a years work. Is there anywhere we can see the map of the locations? Mere curiosity.

I think I read that the map was shared at the time with the US but not Germany. If the Germans was given it, maybe some houses in Sandycove would be still standing.

The US Map was found in Library of Congress or some such as far as I recall.

Yes I know Michael, it conjures up all kinds of thoughts about the time. I think the Sandycove "bombing" was a jettison or wrong co-ordinates rather than an attack?
We're very lucky not to have been invaded because we were "neutral".
That was then, now it's a welcome sign. ;)
