Defence Forces step up campaign to recruit more women with special event in Kilkenny this (Tuesday) evening

Stephens' Barracks hosts the gathering from 7pm

The Defence Forces are stepping up a campaign to recruit more women locally.

There’s an informal information evening for women interested in joining at Stephens’ Barracks in Kilkenny this evening.

It’ll include a talk about different ways to join up full-time or through the part-time Reserves.

Anyone interested can also chat over a cup of tea or coffee to meet serving women like Captain Margaret Hogan who’s loved her career and the opportunities it’s given her:

Captain Hogan says they want young women to register on Eventbrite and come along to the barracks for 7pm.
