    World class Cyber training not happening here?
    http://www.ucd.ie/cci/

    The ban on reservists overseas doesn’t relate to training according to the Defence Act (obviously approvals required), the Acts don’t actually ban overseas (as in operational deployments) for RDF explicitly, it says PDF can go overseas.

    In practice it does, as defined by the keepers of the purse.

    Absolutely but no legal requirement that only PDF can be trained overseas (Section 28 refers to “.... members of the Defence Forces .... outside the State ...”

    But as you say practice is different .... with some exceptions

    Someone went to Canada on a course about 2/3 years ago (could have been in a civvy capacity but I don’t think so)

    Yes indeed I am well aware. Still, the current situation remains. However it should also be noted that everyone in question here is specialist "we-don't-have-very-many-of-these" types where the DF needs whatever it is.
    "Are they trying to shoot down the other drone? "

    "No, they're trying to fly the tank"
