In 1961 a medal named An Bonn Seirbhíse (FCÁ &SM) was introduced. This was given to qualifying members or former members of An Fórsa Cosanta Áitiúil or An Slua Muirí. The obverse depicts an Irish Kern (warrior) with sword, spear and shield. Around the emblem is the legend ‘Faire bhíodhach Tus na Saoirse’ (Active is the Foundation of Freedom). For seven years service a ribbon of St. Patrick’s blue with yellow edging is given. For twelve years an additional yellow centre stripe is added. The ribbon and medal hang from a bronze pin backed brooch with the legend ‘Seirbhís’ (Service). This medal is awarded after seven years of service, a bar is awarded after twelve years and after twenty one years a second bar with the legend ‘21’ at its centre is awarded.
