Can you help identify these pilots and the location?

The photograph shows Irish Army Air Corps helicopter pilots in front of two helicopters, at an unidentified location in September 1979. This shot was taken just prior to Pope John Paul II's visit to Ireland, which took place from 29 September to 1 October 1979. These pilots may have flown helicopters during the event.

This photograph was taken by Des Gaffney.
