Dear Lady, the camper van and the sign are from 1970. As far as I know Ireland had speed limits in miles per hour until 2005, although distances were told in kilometers in road signs already from mid 90's. Anyway, in 1970 the imperial system was the only one used in Ireland, although the change to metric system started slowly late 70's.
Anyway, the story is the one I was told by the owner of this small rental company.
