My First 4 Years in the Irish Defence Forces

In the first episode of season 4 we speak to Corporal Cathy Jennings, a Crewman in 302 Squadron, Irish Air Corps. Cathy speaks to us about her first four years in the Irish Defence Forces, from joining the Army as a Recruit to becoming the first ever female Crewman in the history of the Irish Air Corps. In this time Cathy has also completed a tour of duty with UNDOF in Syria, became a qualified Emergency Medical Technician and she speaks to us about her experiences of having a job that “seems too good to be true”!
