Its that time of year again, when we are getting ready for Christmas, family and Santa. Sadly not everyone will be looking forward with anticipation, instead simple hoping for food, warmth or a small present. Thankfully there are goups like 'Little Blue Heroes' and 'Barnados' out there. Both help the youngest and most vulnerable in society and this Christmas we ask that you join us in making a donation at https://www.littleblueheroes.org/donate/ or https://www.barnardos.ie/christmas

Seen this on the bookface yesterday.

Two intakes of 25 I'd say if we're lucky and that will be it for another 5 years.

Exciting times though for all us wanting to join.

Lads you need to get in the frame of mind here ... Forget the fucking numbers you want something go for it.

Intakes of 50 and there will be a few .... Keep positive, ignore the rumours and get prepared. If you are doing courses research them. Do the right one.

Too right!! I been waiting long enough now to be getting worried about 30k plus applicants. Half of them won't meet the standard required, others will have left the country, others won't know what Templemore is. So you can number down considerably.

Nope. I don't see any upper opportunity being given to other nationalities. It's too complex to get them in for spring. Expect a lot of reserves and rightly so in my opinion and then a selection of the best with good experience.....

Just take in more, no freeze on the reserves.

I suppose would be a good recruitment for the reserves also if the latest recruitment to the AGS showed that been a reserve gave an edge and increased your chances

I hope so. In fairness good luck to anyone sitting across from an interview board who hasn't since 2007 done something to show their interest...

I actually think they won't take that many from the reserves in reality. If the figure is as high as 40% that I'll be very surprised.
