Reserve Forces & Cadets Association
Northern Ireland



27 September 2019

For this year's RFCA NI Annual Briefing and Dinner, we were superbly hosted by the Ulster University at their Belfast Campus.

Over 70 members of the Association joined the RFCA NI staff for an update on reserve and cadet matters. They also had the privilege of receiving an outstanding talk from the head teacher of Banbridge Academy Robin McLoughlin.The members were also delighted to welcome LL Cadet for Armagh Rebecca Pinkerton, from Royal School Armagh CCF, who gave a very inspiring presentation about the opportunities that he has had as a cadet.This was followed by another excellent presentation by a Alderman Ryan McCready who spoke about his career with the military.

Following the briefing, the members were treated to a fantastic meal in The Academy Restaurant, which is the training restaurant belonging to the university, open to the public and run by the hospitality students.  It was a truly memorable evening, with amazing food and outstanding service.

RFCA NI would like to thank all of the speakers for giving up their time to provide such enlightening and interesting presentations and to the staff at the Ulster University for their wonderful hospitality.
