Cavan soldier among troops returning from South Lebanon

A Cavan soldier is among the 343 Irish troops returning home from a six month deployment in South Lebanon.

The final 243 troops from the 111th Infantry Battalion will land in Dublin Airport later this afternoon, with 100 personnel having already returned home. The troops are expected to touch down at around 4.30 this afternoon, where they will be greeted by family and friends.

Captain Paddy Molloy from the Defence Forces press office explains the work they were doing in South Lebanon.
