do your research mate... it pops up how much it costs
Are you ex PDF?
Never mind about "lads doing it now", what decade did you serve in Portlaoise?
2000 ... does it make a diff??? waste of ffffff money
If you have an issue, heres a tissue.
aghhhhhhh you must be 1 of the pump up whores that have a say in the country prob on 200,000 euro a year piss off spa
Did you not mind when you got paid for the duty?
For someone who apparently served you dont seem to have dropped any terminology
I wonder lads was he a red arse who didnt pay the piper
Well arent I a conumdrum.
Im ex pdf and did duty in the prison in the eighties, back then it was mostly political prisoners that were held there and a military guard was
definatly needed.As the political scene has changed I wonder is a military
presence needed any more.Im sure the prison services are well able to
to deal with these offenders. Is a reason for the army being there that
Well that or a troll.
Red arse love that term!!!
The BA gaurded HMP Maze. I think it is a similar arrangement to Portlaoise(Soldiers outside and Prison Officers inside)
The BA did guard the maize prison. Their failure to follow basic SOP's ended up causing a massive escape..but we'll not get into that...
Why do people think things to do with the military are a 'waste of money'.
Last year single parents cost the state 2 Billion in social welfare. The Defence Forces and what it does costs a hell of a lot less, and actually gives something. If your'e looking to brand things as a 'waste of money' point elsewhere.
There are still very dangerous prisoners in that prison. Ireland is not texas, our police and prison service are primarily not armed. With prisoners like that there needs to be an armed guard. The Defence Forces fills that gap.
I wouldnt pump ANY money into the health system here until a Price Waterhouse Cooper-esque analysis and recommendations bearing white paper was conducted AND enacted JUST like was done with the defence forces back in 99.
The Health service in ireland is a GIANT MONEY SLURPING HORRIBLE C*NT OF A BLACK HOLE.
