11. The Irish didn't sit out Congo
Just ran agross this researching something else.
The Irish government agreed to a request from the Secretary General for a force of Irish troops to serve with UN forces in Congo.
The experience showed that Irish troops were as well trained and suited to peacekeeping as any other nationality.
The Congo operation marked the first opportunity for the Irish Defense Forces to serve alongside armies from other nations.
