    Good to hear of more people. Well done in waiting this long!

    Very exciting for all of us. I have been holding off buying a new suit for 2 years!

    Def exciting times ahead :-)

    Hey Guys, Again been watching the threads over the last few months and finally got the call today ... Great surprise with the reality starting to sink in lol

    Good to hear. It is a very strange feeling. Elation, excitement, anxiousness maybe.

    Great name by the way. Nearly as good as iamveryhopeful (aka ithinkimveryfunny) lol.

    whenever I got that letter I mentally gave up on it all (as I am sure others did).

    even though I re-applied I was expecting something similar to happen in the 1509 campaign. wasn't until I passed pca I started to live up to my username ;)

    Massive congrats folks. It was 5 weeks ago since our calls, how weren't you expecting them :P

    Induction weekend is awesome, especially the kit fitting. I was literally skipping down the hall lol.

    My advice is start getting stuff sorted asap. Trying to fit in your normal work, kids if you have them, ONLINE LEARNING andbuying stuff for GV has been putting a lot of us under pressure.

    They'll explain everything really well in the induction weekend. Please for the love of God if you only take one piece of advice from me, WEAR A SUIT TO INDUCTION!!!!!!!!! Oh and bring a pen

    See you at the Hotel :D

    thanks for officially confirming this MOP.

    Need to go buy a suit ffs.

    How I have managed to skip by the last few years in a professional office environment without one is still not lost on me. ;)

    one guy showed in jeans and a hoddie. Needless to say he drew "attention" from the CI, our Sgt, the ACC!!!!! Plus the other squads that were in that day now all know him for the wrong reasons. Tbh he took the stick on the chin and we had a great time slagging him off cos he was great craic. Needless to say he was suited and booted for Sunday

    I get bullied enough on here already by future squad mates. no way am I giving them more ammunition by underdressing.

    wonder has anyone turned up in a football shirt before. :D

    What sort of stuff are they asking you to get for GV mop?


  • Registered Users Posts: 52 ✭✭Whataboutye


    How long were some of you in the "waiting room" for? Just to have an idea of how long I have to wait. Have my medical shortly so I'm quite eager


  • Registered Users Posts: 382 ✭✭iamveryhopeful

  • Registered Users Posts: 52 ✭✭Whataboutye

    Read the "starting garnerville soon" thread. It covers pretty much everything you'll need. There's a lot of pages to read in the post but they are worth skimming through

    Is there anything that you think MikeoneJuliet that may help us along? I know, we're all just trying to grab as much info as possible.

    I was sad when there was no welcome packs in the post today :(
