“Taoiseach didn’t know how many ships we have!” – Senator Craughwell. by Michael McGrath

shipThe Taoiseach of Ireland didn’t know how many ships the Irish naval Service has, according to Senator Gerald Craughwell, who himself was a Sergeant in the Irish Army.

Leo Varadkar thought the navy had seven ships instead of nine, the Independent senator claimed today over the RTE radio Drivetime programme.

Of the seven ships the senator claimed that only three are in full service, two are unable to carry out nighttime duties, two are being servicedĀ  while the remaining two are permanently laid up due to shortage of naval staff to run them.

There’s no reply from prime minister Varadkar.
