????????? there is in the back of one of those things!!! plus space a heap of kids too.

Hate to say it but I've met a few women pilots in my time and all were very good, I'm told women make better sailors too, but that might have been a line from an instructor to win over the girls on the course.

25% of Irish Naval officers are female. Linky

Irish women are as tough as old boots. If it ever kicks off, we're gonna send them in first - the oppo will be thinking, God - what are the men like?

Truth is, we're scared of the women too
