Ralph A. Riccio tells the story of the tanks and other armored vehicles used by the armed forces of the Republic of Ireland (Eire), from independence to the present day.

Although the Irish have never used large numbers of armored vehicles, they have employed a wide and eclectic variety of tanks and armored cars, from British WW1 vehicles through to the South African tactical armored cars currently in service. This book describes the acquisition and operational use of all such AFVs by the Irish, and includes scale plans of all major types plus details of color schemes and markings.
