Listen: 55th Infantry Group Undergoing Final Training Before Deployment To The Golan Heights.

: 03/10/2017 - 10:44

The army's 55th Infantry Group, the majority of whom are drawn from the Defence Forces Training Camp at the Curragh have been undergoing final training before deploying to Golan Heights next month.

They've been running through drills in the Glen of Imaal in Wicklow this week.

130 troops, 110 of whom are stationed in Kildare,  will be deployed to Israeli held Golan in the first week of April, replacing the existing Irish contingent.

Leftenant Stephen Cunningham is a platoon commander for the peacekeeping mission, and says they've been training hard.
