"the EPF is seen as a global instrument ...... will improve its ability to swiftly respond to crises and conflicts primarily but not exclusively in areas that display the most urgent and critical threats to the security of the EU".

He didn't answer the question regarding the meaning of "deployment of critical capabilities" and from the response above, it can only be assumed that combat troops will be deployed anywhere the EU chooses ("not exclusively"). Ireland participates in EU Battlegroups, so there is now the possibility that we be called upon to participate. What about the triple lock then. Added to this is the potential posed by our membership of PESCO. Neutrality anyone??
