S1EP6 - The Naval Service Cadetship

This week we chat to Lieutenant Paul O'Brien, the gunnery and fisheries officer on board the Naval Service Vessel LÉ Ciara, about the Naval Service Cadetship and the process of becoming a qualified Naval Service Operations Officer. We discuss the seamanship, and maritime training both at Haulbowline Naval Base and in the National Maritime College of Ireland and give some insight into the cadet experience. This episode is part of our series on the cadetships offered by the 3 services of the Irish Defence Forces, the Army, the Naval Service and the Air Corps, and coincides with the 2020 Cadetship Competition which closes on 31MAY2020.
