Ready to start your new adventure?
Here we explain everything you need to know about joining our community! Continue to the application form by pressing 'Let's Go!' at the bottom of the page.
All members must satisfy the basic membership requirements AND any role-specific requirements.
(Don’t worry if you’re not sure – the application form will check that you’re eligible).
Basic Requirements (For All Roles)
All applicants to IESRPC must be a minimum of 16 years of age at the time of application. There is no upper age limit.
NOTE: We no longer considering applications from those aged 15 years, 10 months+.
All applicants must be able to dedicate a sufficient amount of time to IESRPC (normally not more than 4 hours a week). The specific amount of time will be agreed at each applicants interview.
NOTE: We welcome full time serving members of the public emergency services and Óglaigh na hÉireann and make considerations for these members due to the nature of the work they do. These considerations will be made on a case-by-case basis at each applicants interview.
It is a requirement to have Discord voice and text communication software (as we use this to conduct interviews and communicate with our members). It can be accessed it on browser here . (They also have a PC desktop app and mobile apps for both Android and iOS). Applicants will be asked to verify their Discord account with our system as part of the application process.
It is a requirement to have the Teamspeak 3 voice software (or be able to install it, you can download it here ) and a high quality, working microphone. If an applicant is not familiar with Teamspeak 3, that’s okay – this can be resolved at the inteview phase.
All applicants are required to have a stable internet connection as an unstable connection could interrupt the consistency of patrols. You can check your internet speed here .
While we don’t have a minimum internet speed, we consider 4mb per second a ‘stable’ connection.
All applicants must be fully literate (i.e can read, write and speak fluently) in the English language.
NOTE: Fluent Irish speakers should contact us before applying.
A number of changes have been made to our recruitment policy regarding membership of more than one gaming community (commonly known as ‘dual-clanning’ or ‘multi-clanning’).
These rules apply to ALL gaming communities that require any sort of an application process, not just other policing roleplay communities.
We now permit you to be a member of other gaming communities whilst holding a membership at IESRPC as long as you satisfy the following criteria:
- You must declare the other gaming communities that you are a member of on applying to IESRPC (and must inform us if you join another gaming community whilst a being a member of IESRPC),
- You must NOT hold a ranking/staff position in the other gaming communities,
- You MUST be able to remain active in IESRPC. This means attending at least ¼ of our patrols or other community events in a 1 month period,
- You must prioritise IESRPC over the other gaming communities.
NOTE A: You MAY NOT be a member of a GTA V (FiveM) UK/IRISH emergency services roleplay community whilst a member of IESRPC. This is still considered ‘dual-clanning’ or ‘multi-clanning’ and if it is established that you are actively involved in another GTA V (FiveM) UK/Irish emergency services roleplay community whilst you are a registered member of IESRPC, your membership of IESRPC will be terminated immediately and the other community of which you are involved with will be informed of your involvement with IESRPC.
NOTE B: If you fail to declare your membership of other gaming communities and it is established that you are actively involved in another gaming community whilst you are a registered member of IESRPC, your membership of IESRPC will be terminated immediately and the other community of which you are involved with will be informed of your involvement with IESRPC.
Additional Role-Specific Requirements
All applicants applying for in-game roles must also meet the following requirements (in addition to the basic requirements):
- Must hold a legal and working copy of Grand Theft Auto V for PC (or be able to buy one). This can be a Steam or Rockstar Games version. IESRPC is NOT open to applicants on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4 or any platform other than PC.
- Must meet the minimum computer requirements to run FiveM. These are available here .

We’ve partnered up with local Irish business NRG Store to offer a range of gaming PC’s built to the highest quality at competitive prices.

All applicants for National Ambulance Service roles must hold a minimum of a PHECC approved CFR (Community or Advanced) certificate in real life and be able to provide proof of this on request to be considered for NAS roles.

Two seperate reviews of the application will take place, one by our founders and one by our Human Resoruces team. This is nothing to worry about.
If sucessful, the applicant will continue to phase 2, an interview. If the application will not be progressed, the applicant is notified.
Phase 2: The Interview Process (After Applying)
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your interview will take place at the time confirmed to you via your application. This is normally the preferred or backup time you submitted with your application, but in some cases, it can be an alternative time. Please ENSURE you note the time your interview has been scheduled for on your application (which can be viewed by logging in to https://active.irishesrpc.com/). If you cannot attend your interview on the date and time listed on your application, please let us know IMMEDIATELY.
