Catalinas and Sunderlands on Lough Erne, Ireland in World War Two : The Aftermath of the Donegal Corridor

By (author) O'Loughlin, Joe

There is little doubt but that the granting of the use of the Donegal Corridor by the Eire Government, led by Taoiseach - Eamon deValera, more than compensated for not granting the use of the Irish Ports to Britain. The German air and U-boats bases in occupied France were within easy striking distance of the ports in the south and west coast of Ireland. If proof were needed the fact is that German planes dropped bombs in Wexford, Carlow and Dublin. Eire was severely and unjustly criticised for its stance of neutrality during World War 2. Never in military history was a neutral country known to have given so much assistance to a belligerent nation as Eire gave to Britain. Since the publication of my first book and the setting up of my website, I have got many messages from families requesting information on how their loved ones died. Thankfully with the help of my historian friends I have been able to provide them with the details required. Many students who have chosen the subject for their history examination have contacted me for information, thankfully they all got excellent results and so make the facts available for the next generation.
