The Irish Army's Forgotten battle event sponsored by Cosmos.ie
On a cold wet Monday night last, the 9th of January a huge number turned out for The Cosmos.ie sponsored event 'Siege of Jadotville' led by the author of the book by the same name Declan Power.
Power originally joined the Army Reserve (then FCÁ)before serving in a variety of roles in the Defence Forces. He later had a number of appointments in Ireland and abroad, including internal security, peacekeeping and anti-terrorism duties. He also attended the Military College and a number of other specialist Defence Force schools and courses.
Power's later years of service were spent attached to the Chief of Staff's Branch at Defence Forces Headquarters (DFHQ).
As of 2017, Power was a contributing analyst on security and defence matters to a variety of institutions and media. He authored a book on the Siege of Jadotville (since adapted for a box office hit Netflix film).
"We're thrilled with the turnout for the event ," said Stephen Kearney Managing Director of event sponsors Cosmos.ie. 'This success shows that there is a real sense of support to give recognition to these men who fought so bravely against all odds, which heretofore has been denied them.'
