Where to get iodine tablets in case there is a nuclear attack?

    Hi all,

    So let's get some things straight first in case I am bombarded by comments that say this. 1. A nuclear attack on Ireland even during the current concerning geopolitical situation is highly unlikely as it is not a NATO member and nowhere near the front lines currently 2. I am aware that iodine tablets (potassium iodine, KI) should never be taken unless there is an acute nuclear emergency 3. They will only ever so slightly increase your chances of surviving the fallout of a nuclear attack.

    That said, I would definitely feel more at ease if I had some KI tablets here at home. Just in case, you know. Hopefully we will never have to use them.

    I was wondering where I can get them in Ireland? Any online store that sells them and delivers to Ireland (dublin) would be great as well. Do run of the mill pharmacies have them?

    I know that in the past, the government has sent them out here, about 20 years ago when I wasn't even living here still. But it's no use waiting for the government to send them out as doing so now would cause panic in the people or maybe some would take them without reason and then it would be poisonous. So hence I am willing to pay money to obtain my own but I have been searching across google and had difficulty finding it.

    Thanks in advance.
