Inscription on Milestone?

Postby D'Weldo-Lad » 25 Oct 2018, 15:46

Hi there,

While driving out of the village on the Hearse road I have recently noticed a badly faded inscription on what appears to be a milestone on the wall in between the Maxol garage and the square, Donabate.

Is this a recent addition as it looks like the wall was recently renovated?
Does anybody know what it says?

Thnks for your time in advance!!

It gives the distance in Miles to the GPO on O'Connell Street.

Took a picture when out walking the dog today. It seems to say "10 Miles". Presumably it's the distance to the GPO?
