An Cosantóir Logo

The logo first appeared in the March 1981 edition of An Cosantóir. It is a silhouette of a Soldier, Sailor and an Airman symbolising the Tri-Service of the Defence Forces. This logo will appear throughout the website. This means that the article it is associated with has appeared in an edition of our magazine 'An Cosantóir'
