Hi all just looked at press release on Re-Org of Defence Forces (Its on Irish Defence Forces Members and Ex Members on Facebook) and 3 Battalion's are no more, they are 2 Inf Bn, 4 Inf Bn and 5 Inf Bn.
In the 2nd Inf Brigade are:-
The 2 Inf Battalion and the 5 Infantry Battalion will become the 7 Infantry Bn.
2nd Cav Sqn, 2 CIS Coy and 7 Infantry Bn in Cathal Brugha, (Dublin)
6 Infantry Bn, 2 Field Artillery Regiment, 2 Engineer Group Athlone, 27 Infantry Battalion at Dundalk, (with) a Infantry Company at Gormanston Camp and the 28 Inf Battalion in Donegal.
The 1 Infantry Brigade will have 1 Field Artillery Regiment, 1 Cavalry Sqn, 1 Engineer Group and 1 CIS Coy in Collins Barracksks Cork.
1 Infantry Bn at Galway, 3 Infantry Bn at Kilkenny and 12 Infantry Bn at Limerick.
Sad times for the Irish Defence Forces where 4 Military Barracks were closed this year so far.
