        Soundest bunch of lads you'll ever meet ( and lassies),
        you'll get to do your marine firefighting course, you'll need that in the merchant marine. Going on patrol might be a bit of a busmans holiday though.

        Also double pay, i.e. a leading hand (Cpl) with line pay and seagoing allowance gets about E800 per week, on top of a bond on board, it's cheaper than the mess!!!

        If your lucky enough to get out on the Eithne you might get a look at he 76's fire control system, it can hit an aircraft at mach 1.8 at a range of 2 miles (or so it says on the tin).

        Could not reccomend the Cork NSR any higher, big shout out to all of them.

            Did someone here not see the Eithne with her 57mm intact recently?

                It still has a 57mm. They took the 57mm out,fecked around downstairs,and put it back on again. I believe it now has a similar c&c setup to Niamh and Roisin...but what would I know..

                    As promised here u Go.

                    A Point to the one considering transferring. I tried the same thing recently,with only a 1 day sea survival,1 day firefighting and powerboat class1, 4 months seatime as a deckie and was told I was over qualified. Then again,my rank and age may have caused a problem also.
                    The Cork lads are A1 though all of them,all ranks. One frequents here occasionally,but I think he is currently in hiding. Not once did I get any snide remarks about "sandbags" or "groundpounder" but instead was welcomed as one of the lads,which is more than can be said for some Army reserve units.
                    I was extremely dissapointed to be unable to transfer to them...:(
                    Here they are by the way on paddys day.

                          Common sense at this stage says that they should fit the 76mm to the eithne ..maybe its wishful thinking or maybe you are trying to convey the same message....

                          I gather that you are NS....what ship? whay division? how long in?


                          Hey goldie shite photo....what a motley crew slua flash at someones elbow...?

                            I claim no credit for the photo..I was with my homies in Limerick that day ,armed with a camcorder (as earhart will tell you) I guess the check parades were short that day?

                            The Eithne one is mine tho..notice the contrast in style/colour composure?(ie,a bit blurry...the camera was cold,lens slightly fogged up..)
