I can confirm for the Deputy that there are no plans to relocate 2 Brigade Artillery Regiment from its current location at Custume Barracks, Athlone.  

I am satisfied that the current Army structures optimise the capacity of the Defence Forces to continue to fulfil all of the roles assigned by Government.
