Oggy, oggy, oggy. Oi! Oi! Oi!

What do you miss when you are homesick? For these soldiers seconded to Northern Ireland “an oggie is home”. Join Terry Smyth and the British Army as they feast on “the best in the west”. This December outdoor dining experience is a strange and delightful sight not to be missed. So charge your glass and prepare to celebrate the pure magic of the oggie.
