  • Information on Irish ARW

    I'm new to this site but have a keen interest in the Irish Army Rangers.

    I had the pleasure of some meeting some of them on a professional basis a few years in the past but I was wondering if any subscribers to this site had any information that does not appear on the various official sites.

    My interest is based broadly on their involvment in homeland operations. I know that the police service in Ireland has its own specialist operations force which probably exceeds the Ranger abilities but any information would be grateful.

    I look forward to reading past issues on the forum and contributing perhaps in the future.

    Many users will have information about the ARW which is not in the public domain, however none of it will be posted here, as it is operational information.

      I am not an expert on the Rangers or the Garda ERU but I would say the rangers abilities probably exceeds that of the ERUs.

      It was the year of fire...the year of destruction...the year we took back what was ours.
      It was the year of rebirth...the year of great sadness...the year of pain...and the year of joy.
      It was a new age...It was the end of history.
      It was the year everything changed.

        I'm curious, you're from isreali how might you have met them on a professional capacity? Lebannon?

          It is not appropriate for me to discuss the contact i have engaged in with the Irish Rangers.

          I do wish to develop a better understanding of their position in their homeland. Any operational aspects of their mission is available to me but their homeland national mission is not clearly defined.

          It is our understanding that the operators of the police force specialist unit are the foremost experts in CT and all intervention. If this is incorrect I apologise however no information exists in Ranger involvment in the nation.

              if its not appropriate to discuss your dealings with the arw here , why then do you feel it is appropriate to try find out about them on the same site. if you really want to know , use your "relationship" with them to find out
              Anyone need a spleen ?

                        You`re joking aren`t you, the words blood and stone suddenly spring to mind regarding information on the ARW.

                          Funnily enough most people on this board, would cream themselves if they even met a member of the ARW, not to mind possess the type of information you are looking for.

                            To preserve my sanity I am once again pulling the big CLOSE THREAD lever.

                            There is already a shed load of information on the activities and deployment of the ARW on this board.
                            To access same, enter ARW into the search function located at the top of this page.

                            counts to 10..........

                              Everything you ever wanted to know about the ARW(but were too scared to ask) can be found in this months(August 07) An Cosantoir. Included details on selection, and an instructors view of Training, as well as interviews with serving members.


                              Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.
