    Why wouldn't the boys from the North enjoy the visit too?

    the Minister for Defence and the Chief of Staff all in the same dangerous location?

    dangerous for the poor Liberians, having two clowns in the one location

    Fair play to el presidentio and Mr El Presidentio, i was in the 82 Bn the Leb when they visited, and they were lovely, no bull about them, really down to earth people. She is a nice bird, and i am sure the boys from the south will enjoy her visit

    Mrs McAleese will depart Dublin Airport next Monday accompanied by Dr Martin McAleese, Defence Minister Willie O’Dea and Lieutenant General Jim Sreenan, Chief of Staff of the Defence Forces.
    Is that not a risk? Having the Commander in Chief, the Minister for Defence and the Chief of Staff all in the same dangerous location?

    McAleese to visit troops in Liberia

    President Mary McAleese is to pay a morale-boosting pre-Christmas visit to Irish troops engaged in United Nations duty in Liberia next week.

    Mrs McAleese will travel to capital Monrovia to tour Camp Clara next Tuesday where she will meet troops drawn primarily from 1st Southern Brigade, Munster.

    After laying a wreath at the camp’s UN memorial, the President will have lunch with the troops and present Christmas cards to the soldiers from their families in Ireland.

    Mrs McAleese will also meet representatives of Concern, Trocaire, the Irish Red Cross and UNICEF who are involved in humanitarian aid efforts in the region.

    The President will pay a courtesy call on the Chairman of the National Transitional Government of the Republic of Liberia, Charles Gyude Bryant, who recently visited Ireland during her trip.

    Mrs McAleese will depart Dublin Airport next Monday accompanied by Dr Martin McAleese, Defence Minister Willie O’Dea and Lieutenant General Jim Sreenan, Chief of Staff of the Defence Forces.

    She will first travel to Senegal to meet Abdoulaye Wade, President of the Republic of Senegal in Dakar, on the first day of her trip. She is due to return home on Wednesday.
