Irish army reserve to PDF

    Registered Users Posts: 5 ✭✭✭ Whelan 95


    Missed out on opportunity to try for pdf due to the age restriction (turned 25 before the closing date.)

    Is it possible to join the reserve and from there join the PDF (work around the age barrier.)

    Been reading around and from what I can gather that it is possible to go from one to the other but does the age restriction still apply?

    Would really appreciate any help on the matter.

    No, unfortunately the age restrictions still apply. The rules are the rules. My friend contacted the Recruitment section of the PDF (he is a serving member of the RDF) and that was the answer he got.

    You’re still eligible for a cadetship if that would be of any interest to you. Applications close on 31MAY2020 at 23:59.
