Training in Tipperary | Irish Naval service on target at Kilconan

The Irish Naval Service is continually working on enhancing the skills of its members and weapons training is naturally a part of this.

Over the weekend sailors were practicing on the firing range as they took part in a Range Managers Course in Kilcoran in Tipperary.
