Through the courtesy of the Dept of Defence and the Defence Forces, we have built up a splendid fleet of military vehicles, including World War Two classics and a fine series of armoured personnel carriers special to the lrish Defence Forces.
|Retrieving a military classic|
|On their departure in 1922, the British authorities left a sizeable fleet of vehicles for the new Irish Army. These were gradually augmented and later replaced by new vehicles and up to recent times much of the transport used by our Defence Forces has, like the commercial sector, been of British origin|
|A memorable Matador|
|One of the most famous military vehicles of the Second World War, the AEC Matador went on to serve bus companies and fairground kings for many years after. Here we chart the history of one that made it to these shores.|
