    Worth a click. He was a very interesting man, who served over a time of huge transition for the Defence Forces. He was also (in retirement) one who was not afraid to speak out in defence of his former colleagues.
    I was personally shocked to realise it is 20 years since he retired.
    May he rest in peace.

    Listened to a couple of the clips
    Loved the one about his appointment to CoS, and the story about the car, the cameras, etc.
    Shows the character of the man
    Visited a former reserve unit I served in, in the mid 90s, while we were on FTT
    We put on a show for him (as ye do)
    The chopper had to fly onwards to refuel, one of the lucky sods from the unit got a jaunt out and back!

    May he rest in peace
