Kenny Looks For Clarification On Terror Attack Readiness

The Taoiseach wants to know if Ireland is ready for a Manchester style terror attack.

He’s called in representatives from justice, health, transport and defence for a meeting this morning.

But Independent Senator Gerard Craughwell has accused the Government of drawing a veil of secrecy over our national security.


He claims a deal, allowing British planes patrol Irish skies in an emergency, was made without consulting the defence forces, he says his efforts to discuss it in Leinster House were shut down.
