The Defence Forces wishes to inform the public of a major exercise that will take place in the Dublin area today, Wednesday 6th December 2017.
The exercise will involve over 500 Defence Forces personnel, including the elite Army Ranger Wing, exercising with our colleagues in An Garda Síochána.
Members of the public can expect to see military vehicles, armoured vehicles, helicopters and armed personnel involved in the exercise.
We hope to keep any disruption to a minimum; however, this exercise is necessary to ensure that the Defence Forces are fully prepared when called upon.
