    The items you want and are very hard to come by and as far as i know there is no shop that specialises in Irish military antiques (although some might say that is any CQMS Stores!!), but here is the good news, have a look at this:

      You could try a shop called "Yesteryear" on North Frederick Street (between Parnell Square and Dorset Street). They sell militaria, including Irish stuff. I think it's still there.

        In Irish service it was called the Vickers Helmet. Saw one in Clonmel two years ago priced €200.

          I have the misfortune of knowing where probably the world's largest remaining stock (ie hundreds) of these is, but can't get at them. :(

                    Pass.

                    Maybe the individual thought it was still around with the advent of UN service

                      Maybe its the photo,but in service they were painted light blue/grey(brighter than naval grey). The one i have seen is similar colour,but not quite as blue.
