    Is the publicity allowed in this special security response exercise intended to send a message to communities on Achill, along the border area of Cavan and Monaghan and to people who might be thinking of going to Strokestown in the near future?

      They don’t look very professional. If I was on Achill, and thinking of an auld protest, I wouldn’t be too worried about this lot turning up.

        If a group of protesters on Achill were aflame with anger, those professional emergency responders could either put out or fan the flames!
