Irish Defence Forces
The Irish Defence Forces (abbr. IDF), were at one time the military of Ireland. As the official army of Ireland, the Irish Defence Forces (IDF) were supported by the government. They defended Ireland's borders and were occasionally deployed on foreign soil to aid other nations in retaining their sovereignty.
Orders were relayed through the Department of Defence's and through the military battlescript in Mozilla Firefox.
In December of 2010, Ireland was wiped by the United Kingdom. Because this failure of national defence, was in part due to a great lack of organization in the two militaries of the time (the Irish Citizens Army and the Irish Defence forces), in the months following a new military entity was created called the Irish Army. This new army was intended to combine both the ICA and the IDF in order to strengthen Ireland's defences.
Each month, the President of Ireland selected the Minister of Defence who handles the legal and diplomatic decisions regarding the military in the Dáil (Congress).
Every three months, the President also selected a Chief of Staff who organized the divisions within the IDF and relayed orders from the Minister of Defence. This three month period was so that the military remains relatively stable from month to month rather than having the entire formation changed each presidential election. The Chief of Staff also selected the Commander General and Commanding Officers for each division. She (or he) also assigned which commanding officers the soldiers will serve under.
The Commander General of the IDF was a position that answers to the Chief of Staff. He (or she) maintained the army, disciplined it, monitored the chain of command and implemented any changes that might be required.
The Commanding Officers were the leaders of their divisions. They were responsible for recording damage, relaying orders and encouraging activity in their respective units.
Whether they were the Minister, Chief of Staff, Commander General or Commanding Officers, all military leaders were selected based on activity, reliability, rank and strength.
Elite Force Na Fianna was only for strong soldiers who are very active and deployable.
If IDF soldiers would move out of Ireland for any reason, but remained loyal to the IDF and fought for Ireland, they were transferred to the Foreign Legion.
There were soldiers of all strengths in this unit.

Operation Ireland's Call
Ireland had been struggling to get organized into the Military module and had very low supply stock which gave United Kingdom advantage to attack our main food supply, Dublin. This event occurred around in the month of June and early August. UK opened a front in Dublin and the six counties Northern Ireland the Irish Defence Force tried very hard to defend Northern Ireland but they focused on Dublin which was their main food supply and main defence target. United Kingdom successfully conquered Northern Ireland and failed to conquer Dublin. Irish Country President irishbhoy1967 opened number of fronts on the United Kingdom which activated their mighty MPPs. Also irishbhoy1967 was responsible for the low supply of the Irish Defence Force when he locked them out of the organizations and he successfully returned some of them but he refused to give back the rest for some silly reason. Dáil Éireann impeached President irishbhoy1967 for his actions for activating the MPPs of United Kingdom and stealing Irish Defence Forces supply. Successor [5n4keyes]] took over and his first act was getting State jobs on the market to boost IDF's supply and revive the Private Sector. This was a success but not many Private Companies came back to life. United Kingdom opened a second front on Ireland in Dublin and this region was successfully conquered by UK because of their mighty 9 MPPs irishbhoy1967 activated. On a strange day eRepublik's Phoenix Presidents John Bartlett of United Kingdom and Igor Elez of Serbia were hacked by an unknown citizen. The hacker opened numerous battles and UK lost 2 important MPPs - Russia and Netherlands. Although with Phoenix members busy with many battles around the world this gave Ireland a chance to regain Dublin and this happened on Day 992 when we successfully captured 99 % of tiles and the Capital and this shows a sign that our advantage was good. The credit goes to the President of Ireland 5n4keyes and members of the Irish Defence Forces High Command for their effort in regaining our Capital Dublin. This event occurred in August 2010.
