#IRELAND: €360,000 Military Recruitment Canpaign Attracts Just 3 New Personnel

[world politics news]

The number of Irish Defence Force personnel in 2017 increased by just three new recruits despite a “huge” year-long recruitment campaign that cost taxpayers €360,000, according to Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin.

The opposition leader accused the government of a “blind reliance” on recruitment over retention and said that between 40 and 50 members of all ranks were exiting the Defence Forces every month.

Ships were not able to go to sea last month because of the lack of personnel and the Air Corps operating at just 70 per cent capacity.
