I read on another forum recently about Pillboxes built by the Irish govt in the event of an invasion from the british army.
Here is a link to a 9 page acrobat file
page 5 has this text ;
3.9.11 During the Emergency (1940s) the main planned line of resistance against a threatened overland invasion by British forces based in Northern Ireland was formed by the rivers Boyne and Blackwater.A line of fortifications, comprising blockhouses and machine-gun pits concentrated along the riverbanks, was built.Thirteen of these structures lie within Brú na Bóinne (Fig. 13).
Followed by one photograph and 2 maps on page 6, you can blow the maps up to 300% + without distortion to get the detail. There were a series of approx 30 pillboxes in a 20k line from Navan to Drogheda following the Boyne.
I was wondering if anyone has been to any of these ? Are many still there ? Anyone have any information on the history of them, when exactly they were built, were they regularly occuppied for any period ? Does anyone have any photos of them now or at that time ?
