Help needed choosing regiment!!!

Hey, I am awaiting my date for pre-selection (Belfast) and my recruiter wanted me to give my choices of regiment: 1) Rifles 2) Royal Irish.
He seemed very keen on me joining the RIR being "a local lad" I was just wondering how much influence (if any) he has on my choosen regiment, Also can you choose your batallion or are you just assigned to the one with the most vacancies. Cheers for any feedback.
