Abstract: We construct exotic $3\mathbf{CP}^2 \char93 10 \overline{\mathbf{CP}}^2$and $3\mathbf{CP}^2 \char93 12{\overline{\mathbf{CP}}}^2$ as a corollary of recent results of I. Dolgachev and C. Werner concerning a numerical Godeaux surface. We also construct another exotic $3\mathbf{CP}^2 \char93 12 {\overline{\mathbf{CP}}}^2$using the surgery techniques of R. Fintushel and R. J. Stern. We show that these 4-manifolds are irreducible by computing their Seiberg-Witten invariants.
