Welcome to Rum Ration, Mr Lazy.

Yes, there are. Yes, you are. There may be restrictions on the jobs open to you, though.

Why would you not be welcome?

I've served with many Irish men and women from the North and South, Catholic and Protestant. There's the usual banter (thick mick etc) in the mess but give as good as you get and your sorted. Every boat I've been on had it's Irish contingent as well as Welsh and Scots.

Don't know about the recruiting side, you'll have to wait foe SM or NS to answer that one (or the sage of RR, the inestimable lady that is Soleil)

And welcome to the site

edited to add Sol posted while I was typing :oops:
 
of course you'll be welcome - we had a thick paddy with us for ages - he is now living the high life in the states on JSF - full subs etc etc - how stupid is he!!

really the process takes awhile so. you obviously applying as a chef? I was thinking either chef, aircraft handler or engineers.

One privous posters said that i can only apply from some jobs, My mother was born in england but has a irish passport and my grandmother has a british passport, would this be any advantage to me??

apply for a british passport you should get it
because of your mothers place off birth and
the fact that your grandmother holds a british passport
contact the british embassy in dublin they will let you know for sure
good luck with joining the grey funnel line had some great times

Well in that case just to get my own back I will tell you of my epic adventures in Ireland, North and South.
We will start by getting a skin full in the Red Lion, and then crossing the road to Flanagan's All Electric bar, and then coming out straight into the Embassy.
But if its Sunday, I'm straight over the border, into the Squealing Pig and when I've done glopping and singing rebel songs its down the road to the night club Carmens or Big Jim's.
And you got a Medal as well for being there :D :roll: 8O

I but if you missed the whaler back it was a long walk back to stroke city
and through all those out of bound areas
we give jack many a lift back because we should not have been there also
but mr lazy keep this in your head
cant crack me iam a rubber duck.
you will get through all your training and then you will see the real navy
