A voice for the Defence Forces


Sir, – The Defence Forces may have been diminished by a succession of administrations that allowed them to fall into decline, but at last the good people of South Kildare have made a stand.

By electing Dr Cathal Berry to the Dáil, Defence Forces’ serving personnel and their families have a powerful advocate, in the right place, to champion their cause for better pay and conditions.

Well done, the Lilywhites! – Yours, etc,


(Colonel, retired),


Co Meath.
