Paying for neutrality

 

Sir, – Why are we worrying about neutrality? Recent reports of the Defence Forces being so short of qualified personnel, equipment and resources should see us in a few years with a total force consisting of the Sliabh na mBan armoured car and a couple of gasoons with a catapult and a pocketful of stones. – Yours, etc,
