Irish Army Rangers swoop on vandals
By Michael O’Toole – The Star

A gang’s orgy of arson in a picturesque part of Ireland came to an abrupt halt after they were confronted by Ireland’s elite Special Forces unit.
Sources have confirmed to The Star more than a dozen members of the ultra-secret Army Ranger Wing intervened when six thugs started torching cars in the Sally Gap in Co. Wicklow late on Thursday. “These soldiers are the last people you would want to mess with”, a source said last night. The Army Rangers had been on a four day exercise in the Sally Gap area and were returning to their base at the Curragh Camp in Co. Kildare when they saw the youths setting a car on fire.

One of the camouflaged ARW troops jumped out of his vehicle to confront the gang while colleagues rang the Gardai. Heavily outnumbered, the mindless vandals remained at the scene until Gardai arrived.
Gardai also recovered a replica firearm and drugs inside one car that was about to be set ablaze. The soldiers – whose unit has recently returned from an arduous tour of duty in war-torn Chad in central Africa – had been using live ammunition during their exercise.

“There was no contest”, said the source, “more than a dozen members of a highly trained Special Forces unit up against six young gurriers.”
All six were arrested and one youth was charged with criminal damage.
LMAO This is brilliant, there is a lot of burned out cars in the Dublin mountains and these thugs keep getting away with it.I hope they throw the book at these knackers(thugs) and make an example out of them,thanks ARW, and thanks for posting irish!!
