If you are unsure I would recommend coming to an open day in the college and if possible also doing the Garda Reserve. It gives the best insight imaginable into the work of Gardaí.

Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

140 Jobs with Dublin Nursing Home

A nursing home is set to create more than 140 jobs in north-west Dublin.

Ardmore Lodge will initially care for 89 residents, with plans for an extension later this year that will add capacity for an additional 40 people.

The facility will provide respite, short-term convalescent and long-term nursing care, and is located on the site of the former Ardmore Hotel on Finglas Road in Dublin.

John Martin, Ardmore Care's managing director, said: "These 140 jobs are part of our investment in a new state-of-the art nursing home that is badly needed in a part of Dublin that features a rapidly ageing local community."
