The post of Barrack Foreman of Works at Custume Barracks Athlone became vacant earlier this year. It has been filled since then by a serving employee in an acting up capacity. Following the lifting of the embargo on recruitment to the Public Service, the military authorities have identified a number of posts to be filled at various locations throughout the country. The post in Athlone is amongst those identified and a competition to fill it will be held as soon as resources permit. It is not possible at this stage to put a definitive timeline on the filling of the post.
