The White Paper on Defence includes a commitment to evaluate the potential development of a new Institute for Peace Support and Leadership Training at the Defence Forces Training Centre in the Curragh and in this regard a formal feasibility study was undertaken. An interim report was presented to the project steering group in November 2018, and a final report is expected to be finalised in Q4 2019, which will inform the next steps to be taken.
