    Hi, well I found the book Janes fighting ships 2010-2011 and the Irish fleet was at that time of the size of 8 military ships and none of them had the name Eire, the oldest of these ships is from the early 80s, so Eire must be older than that I quess.

    The cap tally doesn't represent any ship in particular. It's a generic title, "Éire" meaning "Ireland".

    Hi, thanks, ok, do you have any idea of it, is it from a sailing soldier or landbased? can you get anything out of the written words inside the cap?
    Regards Yab.

    Sorry I cant help much. But it could well be very modern. Here is a recent photo of the Irish navy cap in wear.

    Are those navy blokes armed with AUGs? (how strange IMO).
