    Interesting article from Nicholas Drummond, How does this compare to the existing Irish model and would it work

    There is only one type of infantry battalion at home, all 7 are the same orbat (there is differences in their RDF elements).

    There is a different ORBAT for overseas

      I had an idea good or bad that we should have had 6 full size infantry battalions ie, HQ,A,B,C(this coy should have a mech establishment) and Support Coy, 3 per brigade and also 3 independent infantry company’s. One in Cork (keep infantry footprint/4 Batt tradition there)similar to British system of some Battalions having 1 Coy, one in the Curragh, Maybe one in Athlone. Larger Battalions in certain locations might have negated the need for soldier to excessively travel for duties. Just an idea
