    It would seem that militant anti-GFA Republicans have succeeded in something after all.

    Making 'dissident' a bad word.

    Who says its stolen from Irish army?
    The news story says "rouge elements" LOL smacks of lies
    What news paper is that story in the picture from?

    It would be pretty difficult to steal a grenade from an Army store
    AFAIK the grenades arrive at the grenade range in separte parts/boxes and are assembled for throwing there and are 100% are accounted for theones that arrive
    at range that is.

    He'd need to be a very very very high rank to get access to a live grenade.

    Grenades come in different parts (main body and detanator)
    Grenades are assembled on the day, on the range, by the soldier who is going to throw it, a few minutes before he throws it. There is no way some way could steal a grenade from a grenade range everything is accounted for and supervised.

    So if someone stole a grenade from the irish army
    He would have to know where they are, access to those secure stores
    the different parts/boxes would be stored in different areas.
    It would be someone mid-senior in my view if this occured.

    Actually the army have very strict systems in place to prevent the likes of this from happening. Drawing ammunition has to be signed in triplicate and army quatermasters are notorious for being tighter than a ducks arse when it comes to issuing clothing let alone ammunition. Hand grenades are very strictly inventoried and controlled.

    Why does the Irish army have hand granades? Who are they going to throw them at?
