The Wicklow division of the Garda Air Support Unit made a fascinating discovery while on patrol, earlier today.
The unit noticed the ruins of a homestead and a piece of farm machinery (mowing bar) on a raised piece of land which had previously been submerged in the lakes, according to a statement released on Twitter.
Despite this, the items were exposed following the drought earlier this year.
Images were shared on An Garda Síochána’s Twitter page.
