The conditions of disbandment of the Royal Irish Constabulary provide that every man shall receive the pension corresponding to his actual service, with an addition to that service of 12 years, or 10 years if his pension be computed on a basis of fiftieths. This pension will be liable to suspension during the period of the pensioner's service in any other police force. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
