    Seasons Greetings

    Thank you for all your support throughout the year. Without active members, there would be no discussion board.

    Special Greetings at Christmas to those Members of the Irish Defence Forces who are away from your families this Christmas, through being overseas, on duty or on patrol.

    May I take this opportunity from all of us at IMO to wish you and your families a Merry Christmas, and a very Happy 2018.
    "Fellow-soldiers of the Irish Republican Army, I have just received a communication from Commandant Pearse calling on us to surrender and you will agree with me that this is the hardest task we have been called upon to perform during this eventful week, but we came into this fight for Irish Independence in obedience to the commands of our higher officers and now in obedience to their wishes we must surrender. I know you would, like myself, prefer to be with our comrades who have already fallen in the fight - we, too, should rather die in this glorious struggle than submit to the enemy." Volunteer Captain Patrick Holahan to 58 of his men at North Brunswick Street, the last group of the Four Courts Garrison to surrender, Sunday 30 April 1916.

    Happy Christmas Fothemuckers!

    I hope wherever you are that you and yours have a happy and peaceful one.

    I also hope that 2019 brings lots of nice presents from the Public service pay commission and lots of shiny new kit for us to play with!

    "Let us be clear about three facts:First of all.All battles and all wars are won in the end by the Infantryman.Secondly the Infantryman bears the brunt of the fighting,his casualties are heavier and he suffers greater extremes of fatigue and discomfort than the other arms.Thirdly,the art of the Infantryman is less stereotyped and harder to acquire than that of any other arm".
    -- Field Marshall Earl Wavell.1948
