So from the budget today:
Current expenditure up €18.5 million (2.1%) - that includes €4 m for Civil Defence and a 1% increase on expenditure on pay

Capital expenditure up €29 million (37.7%)
Don't know if that predicted 1% pay increase will be enough, suppose it depends on what the Pay Commission comes out with, wonder what the Capital Expenditure will break down to, is it going to base upgrades or equipment?

So Shaw has made a run over from Appledore and is just off Cork Harbour right now, guess they decided to get her over before Storm Callum hit:
