WhatsApp Twitter Advertisement CONCERNS have been raised among Defence Forces representatives about an expected influx of new and transferred personnel without a corresponding spend on facilities at Sarsfield Barracks in the city. Under the new organisational proposals, the Defence Forces are reducing the number of brigades which they have, and will be moving hundreds of personnel from some areas of the country to others. No personnel are expected to be moved from Limerick but it is anticipated that several hundred soldiers from Cork may be transferred to Sarsfield Barracks.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In addition to this, the force is currently recruiting to expand its ranks by 600 in various disciplinesBut the Permanent Defence Force Other Ranks Representative Association (PDFORRA,) says there is confusion about the move and has warned that infrastructure and facilities could come under pressure with the influx to Limerick city.“We would expect that this will not all happen at once, it will be over a period of time so, initially, the barracks and existing personnel in Limerick should be able to cope,” Gerry Rooney, General Secretary of PDFORRA, told the Limerick Post.But he added that further down the line, there may be serious pressure on the facilities an space at the barracks unless the department spends money on upgrading and facilitating in some areas.PDFORRA says it is “unclear” at this point whether defence personnel are going to be told where to go or if they will have choices.“We want to see our members having choice because there are many who might want to relocate to Limerick.“We don’t want to see people forced into anything. We also want to see them being given a choice of upskilling or retraining. There are some areas where we don’t have enough qualified personnel and others where we have too man. It’s a matter of matching one to the other,” Mr Rooney said.Reducing the number of personnel engaged in headquarters, admin and allied support tasks is a central element to the reorganisation process, according to PDFORRA Linkedin Facebook NewsLocal NewsSoldiers influx could put strain on barracksBy admin – August 22, 2012 818 Print Email Previous articleLimerick to Galway train not on right trackNext articleDeirdre Lawlor has… The X Factor admin
I joined The Bakery School online with a year’s subscription, and also registered three of my staff members to complete the training. I would like to say what a good learning tool this has been for us. We are situated relatively remotely, so attending a college is fairly unrealistic for us, but the online school has definitely filled the void, and more. Not only have the modules been informative and helpful, the support offered by the school has been fantastic.I have sent photos in to them of my mistakes and emailed details of recipes that were not working well for me and, every time, they have delivered fast and accurate answers to resolve my problems, and I have been able to correct my products to achieve great results.It is a great scheme and I would recommend it to anyone. We were originally butchers, but moved into pies four years ago, and bread two years ago, so we have had a lot to learn and really needed all the help we could get. The Bakery School has helped with any issue I have raised and I don’t think there is anything they couldn’t help me with. I really love baking you never stop learning, and with resources like these, the learning happens so much faster.Angela Danskin, Pearsons of Ingleton
Last night, Phish treated fans to a number of tour debuts, as well as the second version of “Fluffhead” on this summer’s tour. Playing the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland, ME, one fan got a little too excited during the “Fluffhead,” finding his way on stage during the song. The fan brought his own drum sticks with him, and jammed with Jon Fishman for a few seconds before being escorted off by security.Watch the whole thing go down below.
