    Just picked up this nice photo on ebay, it's an original press photo from around 1940.
    The caption on the back reads,

    "Fighting Irish--1940

    Blarney, Ireland...in the south of Ireland there is Eire's own army, made up of regulars and part time guards and armed solely from their own resources and without dependence on England. These soldiers marching along the road even wear German type helmets. The army is a peoples army, mustered to preserve Eire's edict---strict neutrality. It has established a formidable system of defenses, meanwhile turning down all pleas for cooperation with Britain."
