The Irish Navy is so understaffed that sometimes they cannot set sail.

That's according to Galway Senator Gerald Craughwell who says even when they do go to sea the inexperienced crews are a source of danger.

In The Irish Mail on Sunday, Senator Craughwell adds that low numbers mean the Naval service cannot fulfil its role.

He also said that ships were going out to sea to create an illusion we have a good Navy presence.
