A major recruitment drive has been announced for the Defence Forces.
The Minister with Responsibility for Defence, Paul Kehoe, has revealed that they are seeking 860 new entrants across the Army, the Air Corps and the Navy.
The drive will keep the current numbers in the Defence Forces at 9,500.
Speaking about the drive, Minister Kehoe said "This year’s recruitment campaign will build upon the successes of 2016 when recruitment reached a historic high, with an intake of 690 personnel, including the largest cadet class in the history of the State.
"It is vital that we continue to recruit young men and women to both maintain the strength level and military capability and to ensure fresh thinking.
"I would encourage any young person who is currently thinking about his or her future career to consider the opportunities available in the Defence Forces and 'Join our Team'."
If anyone is interested in joining the Defence Forces, recruitment is starting on their website right now, which you can find here.
