  1. hi all!
    im 16 and Irish.
    i can do 40+ push ups and the 80 sit ups are doable and haven't tested out my 1.5 mile time.
    im starting insanity asylum after doing insanity
    so now that you have a bit of an idea of me ...
    ive been on the armyjobs website a few times and when i tried to fill out an online application it said i wasnt suitable. i dont know if this is because im currently living in ireland (rep) or if its because im not currently in the armed forces.

    any help is greatly appreciated!
    take it easy, im only a new guy!
  2. Being Irish wont be a bar to joining Para Regt, 16 is too young for P Coy though.
