From above Ten years after the light art project, the sites of the Irish Defence Forces Coast Watching Service lookout posts were revisited to make aerial film recordings. The focus of this aerial footage is on how the buildings or former sites were seen from the seaward side, providing a wide-ranging view of their surroundings. In addition, the still existing and partly restored EIRE signs were documented from the air.
The aerial films show the buildings and EIRE ground markers, some of which have been damaged by erosion and weathering, in the spectacular coastal landscape of Ireland. The documentation from different perspectives clarifies the geographical positioning of the former lookout posts, and in some cases allows the additional localisation of weathered EIRE ground markings.
Further aerial filming on Irelands lookout posts of the Second World War Coast Watching Service and associated EIRE signs will follow. Weather permitting, filming will not be able to continue until spring 2024.
