In preparation for the forthcoming operational commitment, 1 R IRISH is launching a Wristband Awareness Campaign to generate support for Royal Irish soldiers and their families.

Its threefold aims are to:

Heighten awareness of the deployment of Irish infantry soldiers at the spearhead of foreign policy and   global awareness

Generate and widen demonstrable support to sustain both the soldiers and their families through the months of separation during the tour of duty in Afghanistan.

Raise funds for the immediate provision of welfare support – primarily for the movement of next of kin to visit the injured in forward based medical facilities either in the Oman, Selly Oak or Headley Court.

Wear a Royal Irish Wristband to show you care! And to support the lads in our regiment.
