    Today we now learn that our missile defense system, ( I didn't even know we had one) needs upgrading to the tune of €4 million.
    This is probably the funniest things I've read in a long time.

    Only in Ireland could that happen. Could you imagine if someone in the army tried to organise a coup on paddies day? Everyone would be in the pub

    Now that Ireland is a military megapower, I vote to invade the Faroe Islands. Just for practice.

    About time! Hospitals and schools and freedom itself are only secure if we can defend them from an aggressor. Reckless short-termism has been exposed for what it is in Ukraine. Once more the small nations of Europe risk being returned to vassalage or colonial status without military capacity to deter aggressors.

    I support an EU army provided it can only be used defensively. It would reduce the imperative for us to increase military spending. Our defence spending is a pathetic 0.5% of GDP.
