Heroes of Jadotville, Leo Quinlan

Commandant Leo Quinlan is the son of the late Colonel Patrick Quinlan, who commanded "A" Company, 35th Irish Battalion ONUC at Jadotville in the Congo in 1961.

The Battle of At Tiri, a panel discussion with Irish veterans, facilitated by Sgt. Wayne FitzGerald, Editor of An Cosantoir

In April 1980, three Irish Army peacekeeping soldiers serving with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) were shot by the South Lebanon Army also known as the DFF, near At Tiri, in the South Lebanon security belt, two of whom died and one was seriously injured. This is that story.
