Private Michelle Tarpey from Knockcroghery is one of 190 Irish Defence Forces personnel deployed to South Lebanon, where 47 Irish Soldiers have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
These soldiers are representing Ireland with distinction on the international stage by facilitating the development of a safe and secure environment. Some of the more enraptured and perhaps the most brave among them have taken this opportunity to send their husbands, wives, girlfriends and boyfriends a short Valentine’s Day message. The following is Private Tarpey’s message:
Happy Valentines Day to my wonderful fiancé Jeremiah.
Hope you like your present and are not missing me too much. We will celebrate when I return home.
All my love, thinking of you,
