Blacksod Bay (Irish: Cuan an Fhóid Duibh) is a bay of the Atlantic Ocean in Erris, North County Mayo, Ireland. The 16 km (9.9 mi) long and 8 km (5.0 mi) bay is bounded on its western side by the Mullet Peninsula. Its eastern side includes Kiltane Parish, which extends southwards from Belmullet towards Gweesalia and Doohoma. In June 1944, Supreme Allied commander Dwight Eisenhower made the decision to go ahead with the D-Day landings based on a detailed weather report from Blacksod Bay. Despite the official position of Irish neutrality, providing meteorological data on the Atlantic Ocean was just one of many things Ireland did to assist the Allies during the Second World War.Wikipedia
