Give the Army and gardaí the powers and technology to combat the menace of drones

The Defence Forces and An Garda Síochána need powers and better technology to counter the escalating threat of drones, according to the founder of the Aer Lingus Regional airline.

ádraig Ó Céidigh, who is also a former independent senator, said laws to protect society from the dangers of drones should have been implemented seven years ago when he first raised concerns about them in the Seanad.
