Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue.

    This may be the start of an internal recruitment drive designed to recruit directly from the Reserve Ranks.

    Statement from Minister of Justice yesterday 19th Nov 2015
    I wish to put on record my appreciation for the contribution that those who volunteer for service as Garda reserve members make on a daily basis to the work of An Garda Síochána. Together with full time members, they provide vital assistance to communities across the country.
    Recruitment competitions for full time members of An Garda Síochána are open to all who meet the eligibility criteria set out in the Garda Síochána (Admissions and Appointments) Regulations 2013.
    For those reserve members who meet these requirements, the 2013 Regulations provide that, as part of the competitive selection process "due recognition to any satisfactory service by the person as a reserve member" shall be given to such candidates as the Public Appointments Service (which has responsibility for organising the process) and the Commissioner, after consultation with the Minister for Justice and Equality, determine.As part of the planning process for the new Garda recruitment competition to be announced shortly, consideration is being given to how such due recognition may be given to the training and experience of reserve members.
    The Deputy may wish to be aware that of the 475 Garda trainees who have entered the Garda College since it reopened in September 2014, 88 were already reserve members of the Force.
