Cork soldier Shane Kearney is home after being discharged from Beaumont Hospital.
The 23-year-old is making “steady progress” in his recovery from injuries sustained in an ambush in Lebanon in December.
Trooper Kearney suffered a head injury when the armoured UN vehicle he was travelling in came under attack.
His UN peacekeeper colleague Pte Seán Rooney died in the incident. Pte Rooney, aged 24, was buried in Newtowncunningham in the days before Christmas.
Tpr Kearney was flown back to Ireland on December 21 and taken to Beaumont Hospital to continue receiving medical treatment.
In an update on Friday, the Defence Forces said Trooper Kearney is well enough to continue his recovery at home.
A spokesperson said: “He still requires further medical treatment later in the year but the medical staff are satisfied with his continued and steady progress to allow him to continue his recuperation at home with his family.”
A UN report on the incident is expected in the coming weeks.
