Hi, I'm from the Rep. of Ireland and I'm 16-years old. I have always been extremely interested in joining an active Armed Forces and with only two years left of secondary school, I have been seriously thinking about a career in the British Army or more accurately, applying for selection for the Parachute Regiment. I was always active when I was younger as I played football, but I hope to join a gym and get active for the future. I have two questions but: 1). Do many Irish serve currently in the Parachute Regiment and could anybody give me any insight into it? 2). I'm only a small height of 5'5, will that affect me, (if I dont grow)? -Thanks, Sincerely, Delta!
