Hi, I'm an Irish lad of 23 and a have an IT Degree but can't stand my desk job. I'm looking to become an army officer a.s.a.p. and was just wondering can anybody give me some good advice about the long journey ahead of me.
Good God, not a Northsider! If this is the case, for heaven's sake stress that you spring from one of the Southside colonies based north of the river - e.g. Castleknock (sliding somewhat down the scale due to that Farrell creature and an influx of wannabes during the 90s), Howth (heart-rending views of Dalkey... ) or Malahide (unfortunately on a DART line and therefore prone to chavs in transit; also, distressingly close to Swords). However, extensive acreage in north county Dublin is acceptable (and dare I say it necessary for the IG? ) Being from the southside may also be a cross to bear, as the faux-toff accent is largely incomprehensible south of Dalkey and north of Grafton Street (the whole 'southside thing' will also collapse once one is confronted by the real deal across the water...)The-Daddy said:with the influx of technical kit the Infantry isn't a bad idea - don't forget that officers usually manage and don't actually get to grips with the bigger kit
Being a Dub might let you down though - if you are a Northsider!
