After a red eye drive to Shannon airport I excitedly checked in to board my flight. I then passed through the departure gates into the pre boarding security area.
Imagine my surprise to see a long line of uniformed American military personnel waiting to be screened as well.
Ireland has apparently now become a legitimate target, according to Isis. In light of recent attacks on the European mainland and specifically on Brussels airport I strenuously object to the fact that these soldiers can freely mingle with the public.
To make matters worse when I entered the bar\\restaurant area I found the same soldiers consuming alcohol.
Considering these soldiers are trained combatants and adept at hand to hand combat I find it incredulous that they are allowed to mingle with other travellers while under the influence.
I demand that the Government put a stop to these practices and prioritise the safety of the public over the apparent willingness and cooperation of the Government in appeasing warring nations transit their troops through Irish airports
