Colour ringed Med gull, Berry Head

My photos of the med gull seen from the boat just off Berry Head yesterday show that the colour ring is unfortunately damaged. It appears to read 2E1 followed by a damaged numeral, 6 or 8 (more likely 8 as far as I can see).

Ed. - Med Gull with Yellow 2E1? will be Irish ringed, might be worth contacting Sean Kingston (email is medgullring 'at' gmail.com) with photos - he might be recognise it.
