Question

Its a Ford of some sort, the bonnet emblem is some sort of flying bird (grouse may be). Apart from that I am open to any help. Cheers in advance.

Looks quite similar to a model from the 1927-31 Ford Model A range like this one, with the stone guard removed from the radiator:

I think they would have called it a Deluxe Roadster, so actually more like this one:

It's labeled here as a Model A 1929:

 

The very car, brilliant bit of detective work.

I should point out that Avpics got the actual car, goodness knows how (hotline to Wim?). Bye the bye I remember passing a silver 'statue' of a Model T Ford on the way down from Cork to Skibbereen on my only trip to Ireland. I expect you know it, I think it's in the village that Henry Ford's father came from.

That village is Ballinascarthy, it gets plenty of attention from tourists. Keep telling myself to take a pic every time i pass it. Thanks to you all.

At the risk of ruining Avpics reputation I find it is worth googling registration numbers. In the UK doing so for any car gives a good chance of getting make and model for UK plates (the exception is if the number plate has been sold as private and used on a different vehicle)  - with classics and rarities like the one here there is a good chance it will show up no matter what country the registration plate is from.  This also works with things like traction engines - if they have any sort of name or number on them google it.  It is amazing what you can find out.
