Its proving a challenge to identify this whiskey and any information about the whiskey, bottlers, etc. If any anyone fancies a bit of detective work and comes up with any iinformation it would be much appreciated.
As you can see in the photograph the label is a little distressed
Thanks in anticipation

The only other indication to its identity could be in the letters GA, if the next letter after the A is an N and the letter before the G is another A, which from the shape of the markings they might be, then it could be the blended Irish whiskey O’Kanagan, but I could be totally wrong.
It probably reads "Product/Produce of Eire"
Eire was the official name of Ireland until 1949, although continued to be used in the UK for a considerable period after.
CCL is Coverdale & Co Ltd ans is a UK bottler. (had a patent between 1956-60)
Normally these whiskeys are blended Irish whiskeys and unattributable to any single distillery. Recommend you pop it open and taste it.
Proof is normally pre-1980s, whilst under proof is normally 1960s or earlier.
