  1. Hello all, im currently in the process of applying to join 1st Battalion Royal Irish and was talking to a Fusilier mate of mine based in N.I who said that he was pretty sure that as a mainland U.K recruit, i would have to travel to Ballymena for my phase 1 training and my phase 2 would be carried out at Catterick. Im happy to go wherever, but can anyone shed some light on this? Or is the whole thing now done at Catterick? Cheers.
  2. I think your Fusilier Mate is correct but the AFCO will be able to provide you with the exact details. Ask them next time you are passing. All the best with joining up.
  3. All Royal Irish phase 1 training is carried out in Depot Royal Irish/St Patricks Bks Ballymena.
