Tanks for the Memories

Sunday World Article 5th April 2020

You may have heard my discussion in episode 8 with retired Lt. Colonel and one time commanding officer of the Irish Army Ranger Wing John Molloy. In our chat John spoke openly and honestly about a battle that took place while he was on tour in the Lebanon and part of the Irish Defense forces support of the United Nations.

That battle was known as the ‘Battle of At Tiri’ and last weekend the Sunday World documented the 40th anniversary of the battle.

A heroic story told by former soldiers who were in their early days within the defense forces. John Molloy recalled this story if further detail and here are some of the clippings from that eventful time.
