The S76 departed this morning to Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park to collect the Royal Party and transport them to their engagements in Kilkenny & Kildare.
It was accompanied by two A139s and used the callsign "Wolf Section".

279 made a side trip to the Curragh in the afternoon and it returned to the Phoenix Park about an hour ahead of the others.  They subsequently returned to Farmleigh as "Wolf" and then positioned back across to Baldonnel.

The S76 later departed back to the UK.
