                The international competitors must be at a disadvantage in terms of local knowledge and insider info on the comp events. Hopefully the experience gained by the Irish lads will add to our annual sniper comp.

                          OK so last night I was surfing and came across the military channel when the International Sniper competition was just starting. It was an hour long program and members of the Irish team were featured and interviewed several times throughout. I must say I felt an enormous sense of pride watching them. They one two events - the strange thing was that both events were things that they had never done before - the .50 cal and firing from a hovering Blackhawk.

                          It was a team from the 28th that represented Ireland and it looked like (on the show at least) that they were the only foreign team that actually won an event. There were a few foreign teams that they didn't talk to and blurred their faces (Aussie SAS I think).

                          I don't know if it will be shown in Europe but it's not on Youtube yet. The only reference I found to the competition was this one (and it only features US teams).

                          They and the country as a whole should be very proud of them.

                              It just started showing on TV here this month so give it some time. Here is a link to the page for the show on the history channel - it happens that the competitor on the page is one of the Irish team.
