Island in Ireland

Post by jamesrobertsmith » Wed Jul 06, 2011 9:36 am

Here's an interesting article from 2006 about how locals took the initiative to clear an island of invasive species, including trees and rats to begin to restore it. (Only lightly mentioned are WWII-era American soldiers who vandalized historical buildings there.)

ENTS,

This is ALL that is said in this article regarding any "vandalizing of buildings" by American soldiers.
During World War II the island was a favourite spot for visits by the American Eighth Army Air Force stationed at Langford Lodge.
If there are any ENTS military veterans, thank you for your service to this country.
