Commandant Pat Quinlan

  • The Siege of Jadotville-Unfinished Business

    Last week I was delighted to host a briefing for members of the Oireachtas on Jadotville-Unfinished Business, presented by retired Commandant Leo Quinlan who is the son of unit commander Commandant Pat Quinlan (deceased). This extraordinary story has been popularized by a  movie of the same name and last year 150  soldiers from the 35th Irish battalion “A” Company were honoured in recognition of their achievement in fighting against an estimated 3,000 enemy troops in the Congo in 1961.
