A telegram message (above) from Dublin to Berlin in relation to a Luftwaffe bombing in Campile, Co. Wexford (top) in which three
girls women died.
They were sisters Mary Ellen, 30, and Kitty Kent, 26, and restaurant worker Kathleen Hurley, 27.
Some historians say it was a message from Hitler to warn then Taoiseach Eamon de Valera to keep his promise on Ireland’s neutrality, which he did to the end.
