      If I was to join the Navy, what chance would I have of transferring to the Army? If I could, how long would it take?

        I had the same problem. When I queried it, I was told that transferring to the Army from the Naval service was such a problem that naval authorities were stamping it out. That was 3 years ago.

          Any particluar reason why the army wont take recruits at 25?

          Could this be considered age discrimination? The DF had to equalise their height requirements because of discrimination laws.

            It looks like the only way to move from the Navy is to apply for a DF-wide position & hope that you get it. Examples of such jobs would be ATC, SAR & CASA radar operator in the Air Corp. The only Army one I can think of is the ARW, but I'm sure there's more than that.

            As for the age limit, it was lowered to reduce the age profile of the Army. I can see them raising it again in the future.

                The raising of the age limit is just speculation, don't get your hopes up.

                    On further checking it turns out that the DF, Gardai and Prison Service have an exemption from the age and disability equality provisions.

                        Join the navy, become a radio operator and then transfer to Army CIS. Once you are in the CIS unit transfer to any place else that you may want to go. A better idea would be transfer to the Air Corps on an ATC course and get the automatic rank of Flight Sergeant and then go to the Army as a Company Sergeant. That way you can skip all the formalities of promotion and training courses. Of course that would be a fairytale and would probably be impossible to achieve....Good Luck!!

                              How come the age restrictions vary so much from the Army to the Navy?
