    wouldn't vote for her in a fit, now I won't vote for him in a fit either.
    Stoker I sincerely hope you are not prone to fits as all the medics have gone sailing to Haiti on our stealth Hospital ship..which is commanded by Mary Harney


    just shows how little this country knows, or cares about the NS really..... its pathetic
    Its a well known fact that very few in Dail Eireann could even tell you how many ships the NS have..including the minister and that it would take a committie to find where haulbowline is...

    The home flag for Irish Ferries is the Cypriot flag and it is flown in every port. All Irish Ferries vessels are now registered in Limmasol

Both ships are capable of sea lifting a enlarged company group of around 250 sailors/soldiers/doctors/nurses, along with a month's supplies...

    Unfortunately, at the moment the Irish government can't even afford to buy one fifty-sixty million Euros OPV to replace a vessel thirty years in age...

    On the other hand Chile recently purchased a Damen Schelde Enforcer 8000, and after their recent earthquake there are calls to buy another one.... They have found their used ex-Newport LST wanting....

    At least Chile moved to buy a replacement vessel before the earthquake. I guess it will take such a disaster for the Irish government to see the light....

    Keep in mind the Caribbean is not known for earthquakes either. Chile maybe, but not the Caribbean.... The Caribbean is known much more for hurricanes....

    I wonder how well built most of the buildings of Ireland are built. Probably more like Haiti pancaking in an earthquake unlike most of the buildings in Chile....

    If there was no oil in texas. Your lot would be cleaning the homes of Mexicans

    Unlike Haiti, we actually have building codes and considering we're nowhere near a fault line I think most of our buildings will be fairly safe for the next while. Point taken about the ships though. Unfortunately though in the best of times the Irish military was never given the time of day by its political masters let alone at the moment.

    Unfortunately now, regarding the dosh, well you Texans have a lot more of it than us! Having said that if ye happen to have €100 million lying around some ranch somewhere we might always find a use for it!

    LoL, i'm sat beside a Royal Navy submariner at the moment.

    of course he can't confirm or deny any of this, because nothing about submarines can ever be confirmed or denied as he informs me, however what i can confirm is that they (submariners) get loads more pay then me!
    I did the Commando speed march in spean brdge there a few years ago, and there were RN submariners there,

    They for some reason didnt do the speed march but did the 'fun run' which is a run without kit, and the only other people doin it were the ACF-

    It was left to our man Rooster, to fly the flag for the RN in the speed march....
