TY Trip to Sarsfield Barracks

Image

Our TY class recently went on a trip to the Sarsfield Barracks and it was certainly a worthwhile experience. We learned much about the Irish Armed Forces and how they operate, such as their equipment and armaments, chain of operations, and their recruitment process.

We were given the opportunity to interact with a MOWAG, an amphibious armoured vehicle, the artillery cannons, different types of explosive devices and had a hands on experience with many of the arms operated by their forces. We got to wear much of the equipment such as the bomb defusal suits and the standard backpacks and helmets.
