    A yacht capsized last week, two people onboard, neither had a passport, no mayday sent, washed up on Achill Island and was there unnoticed for three days.
    The Air Corps winched Customs staff to examine the yacht, but nothing was found.
    Another one slipped through the big cracks.

    That could be a normal modus operandi with many variations. Boat could be " bought " with drugs already stuffed on board to be delivered with the boat. Drugs can be transshipped at sea but could be more detectable from ais observation. The most frequent detector is prime inside information allowing a nab at an opportune planned moment. Well done them in any case.

    As far as I know if a PQ regarding a DF matter is received, it is forwarded to the DF to gain the info (if necessary)

    Anyone any experience of DF FOI requests, presume it is done by public servants over here much like the PQ's.

    Three men arrested after cocaine worth up to €80m seized off southwest coast

    Given that the op was intel led ie not a random stop & search on foot of info from Portugal I have often wondered whether the NS should sail on the siezed boat, booty & bods for processing there. It would save all the legal aid to the cats here, 000's monthly in custody costs and free up court time for indigenous delinquents.

    Excellent suggestion. At least the vessels would go to sea then
