    when the Taoisech is present its always Mick Treacy.
    Former training Corporal 3 Cav cadre CFR and when promoted to Commandant was promoted into the job as an ADC..was/ is his appointment.

    Got some back round on it this afternoon.

    As was said its his job and when some else is seen, Micks having a day off!

    The President it would seem has a couple, ones a LT. Col, and at one point there was a female captain appointed.

    No he hasn't. He has one. An Officer might get caught to cover the appointment for a funeral but it could be any Officer with the rank of Comdt.

    Take a look at anytime over the past few years when the Taosigh has his ADC in attendance, its this guy,only because he served here.

    I've seen others represent the Tasoigh when he is not present at funerals etc but when the Taoisech is present its always Mick Treacy.

    I believe the President has about 4 who represent her and one is a Lt Col?

    Think it is A Admin section that are responsible for ADC, I've known of officers being detailed for ADC for a week or so, it could be to cover overseas/courses/leave but it has happened.

    He didn't miss..he was avoiding the Pale, like any good Southern-based Naval Officer should!

    You have to wonder at the ability of someone to miss a target as big as County Meath

    I see the ADCs shoes are of the "Deep Purple" variety.Whatever happened to the Tan "Brown boot", or is that only for newbies?

    Should have picked him up by the scruff and told where to go. Obviously took the hump when he realised
    he would be making way for Army Officers.

    Seeing as the ADC is representing his/her boss, I wonder why they didn't say that to him, namely
    "...if it was the Taoiseach/President, you wouldn't be long about moving !"
