The Dublin Civil Defence vehicle is likely full of Shillelaghs, pot still whiskey, Guinness, more whiskey, more Guinness, potatoes and Shillelaghs that double as whiskey flasks. I know this because I have a ton of Irish heritage and actually do own both Shillelaghs and Irish whiskey in quantity. Drinking and bludgeoning is in our blood.
Now, if it was Belfast, it'd be a totally different story. Said truck would be a Scimitar IFV instead. Reminds me of a story about a company commander I had on a training course in the Army. British Army exchange officer. Mountain of a man and utterly fearless. Personification of the British stiff upper lip. We'd hear all sorts of crazy stories about him when he was on tour. One was when he was a Junior Subaltern (2Lt) in Northern Ireland. IRA fighters threw a nail bomb at the British soldiers. Said nail bomb landed squarely between him and his commanding officer. Without a moment's hesitation, he immediately picked it up and chucked it back at the IRA fighters. Nail bomb lands next to the IRA's vehicle and detonates. IRA fighters dispersed.
