62 Reserve Artillery Regiment
Watch 2 Reserve Brigade exercise on RTE News
What did you get up to last weekend? If it involved getting together with 400 or so Army Reserve personnel for an all arms battle exercise, being part of a covert artillery observation team inserted by helicopter, using thermal imaging and night vision equipment to gather information on the enemy or being part of a 105mm gun crew, then you already know of the unique challenges and attractions of an Army Reserve Artillery unit.
If not, then maybe you should check it out. As a part time force receiving professional paid military training, your time in the reserve will bring experiences and challenges that will draw upon your physical and mental abilities.
If you're interested you can come and visit us in action. Open Days in The Curragh...end of May and end of June...Check back here for dates and times. Our next field exercise is also now being planned. We need to meet you about 2 weeks in advance to process the paperwork to allow you come and see us in action, so contact us in plenty of time.
62 Reserve Artillery Regiment is now recruiting new members.
62 Reserve Artillery Regiment is a combat support unit of 2 Eastern Reserve Brigade. With field gun batteries in the Defence Forces Training Center in the Curragh, Co. Kildare and at McKee Barracks in Dublin City, our unit draws its members from all walks of life in the Kildare, Offaly and North Dublin areas. Artillery is known as the King of the battlefield and for good reason. Our support to the Brigade starts with gathering battlefield intelligence by inserting covert observation posts close to the enemy, and follows through to developing and firing 'fire support' plans in support of offensive, defensive and retrograde operations.
