We need a very focused army, maybe a brigade, but who are they aiming at?

Any I've met are/were there becos their Da was in the army, which is the "keep 'em off the streets" system.

The training needed is for shadow wars, IT security, IT skills, and no more 1800s-style uniforms and medals.

The army equitation school, ffs.
From what pool do you take your " focused " army ? They're not going to walk in off the street.

Ireland only country apart from Ghana sending soldiers out and about in contested areas in thin skinned vehicles.
About to be rectified with a new armoured Toyota.
Why does the 'Southern Ireland' State "army" have the flag of the 32 county Irish Republic on their pink blouses???

"The Defence Forces growing manpower crisis has left the Naval Service unable to confirm if it can bring two tied-up ships back into operational service this year."

The Irish Defence Forces are very highly regarded around the globe - your dissident heroes, not so much.

The recent revelations of Irish naval crews having to actually live on vessels because they can't afford the rent reminded me of an episode in Elizabeth R (starring Glenda Jackson) after the Spanish Armada, where she won't let the crews leave the ships because she would have to pay them (resulting in many of them dying). A sad state of affairs.

You are a tiresome little troll that adds nothing to public discourse.
You are the troll who used to goad Republicans with comments such as making Republicans fighting to free Ireland when caught "squeal like pigs".

And here you are today - a modern day truce-ilier - jumping on our Republican bandwagon.

The historical fact remains - the renegade Free State army (deserts and betrays an organisation, country, or set of principles) that are now called the Defence Forces, were set up as Crown Forces.

They are the legitimate armed forces of the country. Your opinion of them as traitors is a crank, extreme opinion shared by a handful of swivel eyed loons.

What country would that be?

The 'Southern Ireland' State is obviously not Ireland - only swivel eyed loons think a bit of Ireland is the whole of Ireland.

So, why does the 'Southern Ireland' State "army" have the flag of the 32 county Irish Republic and the word 'Ireland' on their arm?

Who is "we" - and what do you imagine you "won"?
US the Irish people. Forcing the Brits to the Table to negotiate.

We the Irishpeople will wear the Tricolour with pride when and where we like as long as it is in a dignified and proper manner

Sure you're not even Irish - you are an Unionist who accepts the partition of Ireland.

You accept England's 'Gov of Ireland Act 1920' which came into affect in May 1921 - nothing was negotiated when Collins and Co went to England a few months later in Oct 1921. That was merely a rubber-stamping exercise.

The tri-colour is the flag of the 32 county Irish Republic - misappropriated by the 'Southern Ireland' State, as a dominion flag within England's Empire.

The 'Southern Ireland' State and its "army", the defence forces brings shame on Ireland - no Irish flag can fly proudly while England still occupies part of Ireland.

As usual - you do not know what you are posting about.

I wasn't born then - but I do know that just over 50 percent of the people in the 'Southern Ireland' State eligible to vote voted - and not all them voted to change 2 and 3.
