They did indeed. Only a handful of wagons received the 'Irish Cement' branding, while the majority carried the ivory CIÉ livery right to the end, although it was often hidden by layer of hardened cement dust!

This amazing photo shows you, from 2012, what an "Irish Cement" branded wagon looks like....She was the last to be held at the sidings in Limerick, after all her sisters had been scrapped months previous, before she mysteriously "disappeared"...

 

A surprise sighting at Limerick was a 4 wheeled Bubble Cement wagon 25199 which is stored on the gantry sidings. I thought all these wagons had been scrapped. Sat 04.02.12

 

We've taken the dirt off her, btw ;)
