    • In other words no one commissioned after 1 Oct 2020 can be promoted to Captain (not even fixed term)

        Yes they can. Its covered. What RDFRA wants, is to allow the minister to promote without interview. The minister can promote anyone he wants, the regulations give him that gift. And it also gives him the authority to commission anyone. But they are reserved for exceptional reasons.

        • We still carry a lot of non effective officers, who are holding up alot of promotions. DRES tried to get them off the books a few years back but I dont think it worked.

          • I think trelhiem is correct. Someone has their knickers in a twist over a promotion but where, I have not seen one since last year and I think they were post 2005.

            • I just looked over RDFRA FB page and the last AR promotions were to cpl in 1BDE during Nov 19. However there have been multiple promotions of officers, a commissioning and various NCOs in the NSR??? And that's all during a pandemic and they have a lack of personal!!!

                  • I know there was promotions but you wouldn't think looking at rdfra page. Reserve pr is poor.

                          someone's got the hump obviously.

                          fyi 31 (1) just says the minister can promote officers so it looks like they got the para wrong.,

                          ( sorry linky https://data.oireachtas.ie/ie/oireac...r-thurs_en.pdf)
                          The question is, why are those questions being asked?

                          Comment


                          • There was a captain promoted commandant only last week

                            there was a bunch of cpls promoted Sgt in 2 Bde this summer


                            As for why these questions are being asked, like I said someone's not happy.
                            "Are they trying to shoot down the other drone? "

                              I know several who tried to get out and their paperwork was "lost" or excuses made multiple times. It was made clear to one that he was wasting his time trying to get out and that they were worried about the optics of the collapse in RDF numbers.

                                Over the last few years the DF has been trying to get non attendees to resign their commissions
