KEEPING THE PEACE Mrs Brown’s Boys star Brendan O’Carroll reveals plans to film comedy pilot about Irish army peacekeepers in Lebanon in 1980s

BRENDAN O'Carroll has revealed he plans to film a ­comedy pilot about Irish army peace keepers in the Lebanon during the 1980s — starring the Mrs Brown's cast.

The 63-year-old told how he had spoken to veterans to find out about the bizarre situations defence forces personnel got themselves into trying to keep the peace.


Mrs Brown's Boys creator Brendan O'Carroll reveals plans to write a new comedy pilot


Brendan told the Irish Sun: "If the Irish Defence Force guys got fired on, they had to ring up HQ to find out if they could fire back.

"Sometimes HQ had to ring up Geneva in Switzerland to return fire. In the pilot, I've written about how some Lebanese kidnap an Irish soldier and his comrades set out to get him back without getting authorised.


The show will be about Irish troops trying to keep the peace in Lebanon


"I spoke to so many guys who were out in the Lebanon and every one of them had a funny story. I loved hearing them.

"I don't think we celebrate our Defence Forces enough, they've been through so much."



Brendan said he won't stop making specials of Mrs Brown's Boys


In the proposed show, Brendan will play the commanding officer of the peace keepers sent out to the Middle East at short notice.

He said: "The pilot has these young guys taken off the streets, dropped into the Lebanon without really knowing where they are and setting up Camp Shamrock."
