    Reality : They dont have the helos or logistics to take part without help from another nation, further its not really a special forces type mission, its marine enforcement.

    Yes. That was the verdict.

    "Reilly (32) of Crooksling, Brittas, Co Dublin, had denied the murder of Oisin Reilly-Murphy of Manor Kilbride, Co Wicklow, on June 5, 2000 at Kiltalown Road, Jobstown, Tallaght in Co Dublin.

    On the night of June 4, the ex-army ranger visited his cousin's home where Oisin was also staying with his parents. After several drinks, he went to sleep in the sitting room where Oisin had been left sleeping. The baby was found beside him the next morning having died from several stab wounds to the neck, inflicted with Reilly's multi-tool knife."

    A quick google search reveals such gems as

    "An ex-Irish Army Ranger and former sanctions inspector in Iraq stabbed to death an 18-month-old infant by slashing the baby's neck so forcefully that it cut into the cervical bone, it was alleged in the Central Criminal Court today."

    and

    "AN ARMY Ranger Corporal who grabbed the heads of a female soldier and another woman, exposed himself and called the civilian woman a “dog’s bollocks” while socialising in a hotel, has lost his challenge to his demotion."

    BTW, the reason they could not send the "navy" is that they are too busy harassing Irish fishermen. And supplying inside info to drug dealers. As if the sorry assed fkers would ever catch anything other than a scallop boat.
