Yes.

Ask any Mick about the Benney Babies. All Brummies...all recruited/'guided' into the Irish Guards.

Are there any Irish blokes in the Irish Guards? There were two of them at a PB I was at, both brummies.

Plenty of Commonwealth troops in English, Scottish, Irish & Welsh units so what do you think?

Though they would probably like you to have an Irish heritage of some sort, e.g be of Irish descent or like spuds

You however appear to be a gurl so probably do dresses and make up and stuff. Have you considered the Royal Marine's?

I was told you can't join the Grenadiers unless you are from Grenada.

When it was St Paddies day on Telic one, the Irish Guards had a parade and welcomed anyone with boggy blood, once word got around there was going to be free whisky at the parade it turned out that about 97% of the entire British army has some form of potato-munchers blood in their veins.
