A wildfire in Ireland has uncovered a remarkable sight from World War II

A Second World War-era sign has been rediscovered after a gorse fire ravaged a hillside on the east coast of Ireland. 

The Irish Air Corps and Garda Air Support Unit spotted that a fire had exposed an old “Éire 8 sign” — a landmark dating back to World War — on Bray Head, in County Wicklow. 

During the war, the word Éire — which means Ireland in the Irish language — was carved into 80 headlands around Ireland to warn allied and German bombers that they were flying over a neutral territory.

The Garda Air Support Unit said they’d never seen the sign at this location before. 

Amazing.
