Defence Forces want more women, gay people and ethnic minorities

Minister for Defence Simon Coveney has announced a recruitment drive for 350 new personnel for the Defence Forces, and said that the new recruits should “fully represent” modern Ireland in terms of gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation.

Mr Coveney said that maintaining the State’s defence capacity means that “we need to recruit young people who are committed, adventurous and enthusiastic, and who will bring that energy to ensure that we continuously reinvigorate the modern Defence Forces”.

“I am also committed to ensuring that we have a Permanent Defence Force that fully represents the modern Ireland in all of its dimensions, including gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation, and the current campaign will endeavour to reach out to all those groups,” he said.

“The Defence Forces are committed to full equality among all its personnel, irrespective of gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation.”
