Recruitment to An Garda Síochána is governed by Statutory Regulations, namely the Garda Síochána (Admission & Appointments) Regulations 1988/2005. The maximum recruitment age is set at 35 years for full time members and there are no plans at this time to increase the upper age limit for recruitment.
