Not sure if this subject has come up before so Joshua can moderate if necessary.

Thought this could be an opportunity for people to promote various Reserve Defence Forces units. I'll start the ball rolling.

If you're from Dun Laoghaire- Rathdown / South County Dublin / Wicklow you may be interested in this website: www.21infantry.com (http://www.21infantry.com)

One member from each unit can make one post on this thread to include your unit name, brief description, unit location & times of parades. Once every unit has posted the thread will be locked off & set as a sticky.

That way, prospective recruits in your area, get the relevent basic information and if they're anyway interested they can go down & find out themselves.

All other posts will be "moderated".

Shouldn't it be every sub-unit ?

Given that for some units (eg the West Cork Biys of the 11th Bn or the 15 Bn Kerrymen ) there's a large geographical spread and so one may be more attractive than the other.

On PS there's always the military.ie website index of all the units if you want to find your local one.

If you live anywhere in Dublin ... join the 7th Field Artillery Regiment.

The 7th Regiment is as professional a unit as you get in the FCA. If you join us, you will be trained to be as good a Gunner as our PDF counterparts. You will get hands-on with our heavy artillery guns as well as all the standard soldier & infantry skills such as drill, tactics and weapons. You can expect regular weekends and field days along with the formal weekly training programme.

If you are interested, come along any Tuesday night to McKee Barracks at 19:45. Ask for the 14th Battery of the 7th REGIMENT (not Battalion!) at the gate. Alternatively, PM me and I will meet you. We are recruiting just now.

What's more if you shape up - you will earn the rank of "Gunner XXX" which is far better than being called "Private XXX". And you get to wear this unit flash on your No1s ...

Get infantry trained (most of all of the above) and when you pass out as a 3* go on to do driving and gunnery courses on everything from Nissans to AML90's.

Parades are Thursday at 19.30 in Cathal Brugha barracks in rathmines and even if your living on the northside its quite handy to get to. Why walk when you can ride?

One thing I noted - the old 20th/21st divide is still alive and well, from the
lanyards I've seen on view in the latest pictures from the Pot NCO passing
out. Any sign on a common lanyard for the battalion?
And can the CQ's get their fingers out and get those new Cpls kitted out in
decent No.1 uniforms?
The two tones on view must be embarrasing for those lads.

One last thing - out of curiosity.... what location is this parade being held in?

If anyone from 2AD wants to PM me, and I can get the low down on the Unit, it would be nice. And anyone from 3AD now in dublin, give me a shout and we'll grab a pint.

If the date of attestaion exceed a certain time frame from time of discharge ,security clearance is required.

From the expeiriences of one particular person who posts here it took in excess of 10 months to be able to re enlist in the RDF after leaving the PDF.

Depending on reason for discharge it the person may not be eliglbe for re enlist ment..check out page two of the discharge book!

Discharge by purchase, family reason's that i felt i could not commit to the DF at present.
Coy. Cmdr assured me of re-enlistment.
Also recommended the RDF until i decide to re-enlist.

hptmurphy
11th September 2007, 23:00
Also recommended the RDF until i decide to re-enlist.


oddly enough I wouldn't agree with that thinking as it would possibly cloud any future thinking on re enlistment.

I found I needed to take some time out before enlisting in the RDF...two years but then again I had passed through the recruit stage and seen some of the bullshit that went with the job.

take a time out six months maybe more..maintain fitness levels etc but don't rush into anything if anything having done some of the recruit training you will find the RDF to be somewhat of a climax and might actually turn you against re enlisting in time to come.

I'm not presuming anything...just take sometime out to look at what you want..no need to rush...just some advice.

So to enlist in the reserves, step 1 is to present yourself on recruiting night?

Hello Alaska

It is indeed.

No its not.

Step 1 is to decide what type of RDF unit you want to be in.
Step 2 find out is such a unit is in your area! ( some want to join the reserve ranger wing but they are so secretive they can't be found!!)
Then present yourself to the unit HQ either on a recruiting night or another night so they know you exist.

What happened with you joining the PDF?

Hello Alaska
5th October 2007, 13:21
I'm just waiting for a start date........ When we finished the Fitness Test the lad in charge said "Don't be ringing the Manpower Office wondering when you get in, when we have a platoon ready we'll let you know" or something along those lines.

So I'm being a good boy and waiting my turn :tongue:

NK: I would have thought that someone would have had an answer for you.

My advice is that there are medical units in Dublin, Cork and Galway. Look up the phone number for the one nearest you and give them a ring.

Well some people on here are in a position to capitalise on this.

IMHO the key to our survival is co-operation.

You can also join in Limerick, Clonmel or Kilworth if you are in the Southern Brigade. Good choice picking the medics; better craic, better courses! :-D

Training begins with your recruit camp where 9/10 times you will do your Cardiac First Responder, then you progress on to doing your Occupational First Aid and finally your Ambulance Skills. These courses are ususlly revalidated every year.

As well as all this you will also recieve all the basic infantry training :biggrin:
