    To the best of my knowledge ICAA is self funding (ie no HSE funding), would it therefore say no HSE staff? Not sure

    It is based on the Community Rapid Response model (so afaik they volunteer in their spare time)

    Maybe the consultants is to do with the national consultant shortage?

    My understanding of ICAA funding also.

    Which begs the question....while volunteerism is a great asset it doesn't always guarantee continuous availability of staff.....which is an absolute necessity to give the service any chance of public or professional credability.
    The people of England have been led in Mesopotamia into a trap from which it will be hard to escape with dignity and honour. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. The Baghdad communiqués are belated, insincere, incomplete.....It is a disgrace to our imperial record, and may soon be too inflamed for any ordinary cure.We are to-day not far from a disaster.

    I understand it is to be based out of an airstrip in Rathcoole, near Kanturk in North Cork. They couldn't secure a permanent spot in either Cork or Kerry airport.

    Geographically a better location than either airports but without an instrument approach it will be more weather limited requiring Visual Flight Rules for operations.

    Long history of helicopter operations from that site.
