    In other news:



    The Minister said he was committed to increasing the strength of the Unit.

    “I am satisfied that on-going coordination and liaison meetings take place between the Defence Forces and An Garda Síochána to ensure that the security of the State is given top priority. In recognising the dynamic nature of the security environment, initiatives to enhance and support interoperability include the development of agreed protocols, joint seminars on response to a terrorist attack and exercises on crisis management.

    Can't see the ARW dropping standards.

    No shortage of guys going on selection AFAIK

    There nothing can be done

    Answer him better to reinstate ARW allowance to the full amount

    Nice video. I followed it as far as " I'm a man of the Fianna", then there is something about unity, maybe comradeship? And courage?

    It's great how much the videos have come on from a year or 2 ago when they were still flogging the life less ordinary thing with the shite music!
    I've never seen the visible lasers turned on on their rifles - is it actually that visible or was some video editing creative license applied?

    It only takes a small amount of smoke or steam in the air to make the laser visible, so one stun grenade through the door and away you go. Next time you have a shower turn off the lights and shine a laser pointer through the steam, it's very visible.

    People apparently play with a lot of different things whilst having a shower but laser pointers is a new one on me!
