Army Life

In 1996, at the tender young age of 18, I went off and joined the Army. Why? I’m not really sure. I wasn’t sure then. I’m not sure now, but it seemed like an ok idea at the time.

My 14 years in the Irish Defence Forces was divided between 4 years Army and 10 years Air Corps.

Overseas on 82 Irishbatt, UNIFIL, Lebanon, and on IRCON-6, SFOR, Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina.
