Defence Forces to Hire
Friday, March 16, 2012

Minister of State Fergus O’Dowd has told the Dail that the recruitment of up to 600 staff for the Defence Forces will begin this year.

Mr. O’Dowd said the intention is to bring the forces up to the target level of 9,500 members from the current level of under 9,000. Mr O’Dowd would not be drawn on when the recruitment would begin but said it would happen as soon as possible.

He confirmed that 551 members left the Defence Forces between 1st January and 29th February. He said vacancies at the level of Major General and Brigadier General had been filled and procedures were in place to ensure that other vacancies were filled.
