The Defence Forces' Mowag in Naas today

Irish Defence Forces members pulled a huge armoured vehicle through Naas this afternoon to raise money for the Midlands Branch of the Down Syndrome centre.

Earlier today they began a 52km trek on foot from Portlaoise. When they reached Kildare Village, they began hauling a 16.5 ton armoured Mowag for the last 22km of their journey (via the old R445/R413 roads) towards Naas.

They came through Naas at about 3pm today en route to Joe Mallon Motors in Naas where they completed the fundraising trek.
