  • D.F battles.

    I'm curious to know about how many battles the Irish defence forces have been in.

    Cant seem to find any info. on the subject.

    Oh and when I say battles I mean real ones as opposed to pub fights, exercises, and israeli arty rounds land near a UN op.

      I think you might want to ask "I'm curious to know about how many firefights the defence forces have been in"

        dont forget the battle of the Portebello

        15 bouncers for about 3 different clubs converged and

        we beat them like they were red haired foster children

        the after action report on that incident led to the Army establishing the

        school of FIDAC
        Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
        Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
        The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
        The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
        The best lack all conviction, while the worst
        Are full of passionate intensity.

              I've heard of FIPAC(Fighting In Pubs And Clubs), even did a few exercises in the South Dublin AO but FIDAC is new to my bagger ears.

                        I have to say thanks to the old 2 batt for creating the circumstances whereby everytime I go into Tramco with a tight haircut the bouncer asks me "You lads ain't from the barracks are ye?"
