Garda Recruits To Return To Templemore Next Summer

gardatrainingNew Gardaí are to be now recruited again, on a rolling basis, to assist in maintaining the existing force’s overall strength at 13,000.

Approximately one hundred new recruits are expected to be admitted to the Garda training college in Templemore, Co Tipperary, at intervals of three to four months with the first batch of one hundred to arrive in Templemore next summer, graduating as fully fledged members of the force two years later.

Details of this new recruitment to the Gardaí, which has been dormant since 2009 because of a moratorium on public service numbers, is understood to be officially announced today.

It is understood that more than 32,000 applicants have already expressed an interest in joining the Garda force and same will form the bulk of those competing for the initial one hundred places.

These applications are currently being examined and the Public Appointments Commission will set an initial online test for interested parties in early January 2014. Further assessments will then be carried out and the numbers whittled down before a group is chosen for a full interviewing process.
