Ireland in Yemen war financing Non-Outrage

Saudi Arabia had a very successful bond sale of nearly US$18 billion recently. The money will help finance the overall budget which means that in principle it's financing anything in that budget, such as for example the war in Yemen.

Interesting example of the blind spot in Irish anti-war sentiment. It focuses on the use of Shannon airport by military flights. Those Saudi bonds: they're listed on the Irish Stock Exchange.
