It was an especially proud moment for twin Air Corps cadets who both got their wings yesterday.

Three generations of their family looked on and beamed with pride, in what was a unique occasion at Casement Aerodrome in Baldonnel.

Proudest of all was their father, Dundalk-based Garda Inspector, Brian Mohan, who was clearly thrilled his sons were continuing the family tradition of uniformed service to the State. Their grandmother, Theresa Mohan, and Frankie's four-month-old godson, Harry, also marked the special family event.
