    I'm presuming this mention from the Indo is in reference to the PC12's:
    The Defence Forces have funding for three new fix wing utility aircraft.

    Yes

    The CASA replacement has been announced in NDP funding as well (total defence capital allocation 2018 to 2027 will be €0.5 billion (indicative))

    So what about 50m a year and we already know that 300m or so will go on the EPV and the 2 CASA's, not much leftover for anything else.

    €300m more likely €150m at the very most

    I can see no mention in the NDP of how many aircraft will replace the Casa's or the bizarre connection to Brexit.

    I’d put it down down to thick politician/civil servant/jouro

    BREXIT you say? Who says British flagged fishing vessels will have access to EU waters

    Brexit or no Brexit, the Casa's are due to be retired and replaced, which has absolutely nothing to do with Brexit.

    And we all know that and the WP highlighted it anyway, but then it's not the first time the Irish papers got stuff wrong, now if we had ended up talking about expanding the buy to 4 then it could be inferred that somebody had thought Maritime Patrol might see increased demands.
