      I thought this was already in law. Bout time. I can see the anti "european army" people having problems with it though. When's it going in front of the dail for debate ( or is already)?

        40 years to change the law so Irish soldiers can train abroad. Roll on 22nd Century. By which time Ireland may have a DF fit to enter the 21st C.



        I can see it now- Ireland's F22s, F111s, B1 Bombers, M11A Abrahms and Humvees.........


        .............. protecting us from NCC1701D and the rest of Starfleet Command's evil empire building war machine.

        Take these men and women for your example.
        Like them, remember that posterity can only
        be for the free; that freedom is the sure
        possession of those who have the
        courage to defend it.
        ***************
        Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like.
        ***************
        If you're not ready to die for it, put the word freedom out of your vocabulary.

                    Two members of the reserve have already attended training courses with the British army.
                    They shall for the moment remain nameless.

                      AFAIK this Bill is needed in the case of groups larger than twelve personnel. Groups <12 have been able to travel to courese and on missions without Cabinet approval e.g. training courses and maybe the Liberia recce group (open to correction).

                          Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
                          Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
                          The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
                          The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
                          The best lack all conviction, while the worst
                          Are full of passionate intensity.

                            No one is going to name anybody here.

                              Can you give us a few sketchy details about this? I don't want to know who they are, just the type of course they did? Was it an official military course, (the British Army run some courses for civilians), did these lads go as civilians or Irish DF pers?
