The Irish Military College, 1930 – 2000

 

On 15 September, Mr Paul Kehoe TD, Minister responsible for Defence, launched The College: The Irish Military College, 1930 – 2000, by Colonel Tom Hodson, in Collins Barracks Dublin.

Since its establishment in 1930, the Irish Military College has had a vital influence, not only on the Defence Forces, but on the nation itself.  In his book Colonel Hodson, a former instructor in the Military College and a graduate of École de Guerre, Paris, recounts how from its early predecessor, the Army School of Instruction, the Military College has repeatedly re-invented itself, culminating in the requirement for this modern institution to embrace and impart instruction based on the needs of today’s Irish Defence Forces.

The College is published by the History Press Ireland and is available from bookshops and online at: http://www.thehistorypress.ie/The-College__p-708.aspx
