Family and friends have welcomed home 230 members of the Defence Forces from South Lebanon.

They touched down at Dublin Airport this evening following a six-month peacekeeping mission.

They had been serving with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).

There were tears, hugs and screams of joy at the airport as the members of the 110th Infantry Battalion arrived back.

Martin McMahon said he missed the simple things in life while he was away.

"Honestly? I missed proper pubs. I missed butter, milk, real food... Irish dairy products - not a plug! Yeah, that's what I missed most".
