    Good to see the defense forces capable and ready to deploy choppers to the North to help cut off farmers with animal fed and also have the capacity to do an SAR job while there.

    People should think long and hard about their criticism of our defense forces who when the going gets tough are there for these people.

    "It has also emerged that a charge would be incurred for use of the huge RAF Chinook helicopters while the Irish Air Corps had provided assistance for free."

    Strange but true.

    And they're doing it for free... apparently... unlike the RAF who were charging and have been told where they can take their Chinooks...

    Good to see neighboring counries getting on and co-operating in a time of need.

    Puts the goings on in North Korea into context.

    I hope Glenshane doesn't cop on to the fact that it is an ecumenical helicopter service. If he finds out the Free State helicopters are supplying northern Presbyterian cows with catholic feed there will be all hell to pay and no tar too hot.

    Some parts of the republic near the border I believe fall under the UK's SAR area of responsibility so at the end of it all, you have two neighbours helping each other out.

    Yes it was nice of the RAF to fly over the Irish Sea.

    Great to see this people showing an all-Ireland sensibility. Let's not forget how county councils south of the border helped their northern counterparts with water supplies during the big freeze in early 2011.
