The army’s 55th Infantry Group 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 will be deployed to Israeli held Golan in the first week of April, replacing the current Irish contingent.

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