Armed Forces To Carry Out Manoeuvres In Tipperary

Irish Army Defence Forces personnel will be taking taking part in major military exercises in South Tipperary and the North Cork area over this coming  week.

The public and motorists are being advised to be aware and expect to encounter the movement of large groups of armoured vehicles between Monday and Thursday, and especially on the Tuesday morning.

This movement will be in the areas Kilcoran, Ballyporeen, Araglin and Kilworth military ranges.

The main problem at the Kilcoran, Cahir military range is always military traffic waiting to turn across the main Cork to Dublin road unto the range, or when leaving, vehicles pulling out of the range in convoy.

Warning to motorists: This stretch of road is quite dangerous and the Military Authorities are anxious not to add unnecessarily to this danger.

Considerable military helicopter activity is also expected around Kilcoran and north of Araglin.

These exercises will also include the use of simulated explosive charges being detonated on the military ranges in these named areas.
