Fighting Irish

Now that the IRA is non-opertional, Irishmen are in the army now:
The British Army is becoming more Irish by the day, it was revealed today.

More and more recruits from the Republic of Ireland are flocking across the border to sign on to fight for Queen and Country.

Army Recruitment in Northern Ireland revealed that 16% of all those enlisting since April were from south of the border - up from the 10.5% recorded in the previous year.

....There has been a centuries old tradition of Irishmen joining the British Army - one which has been rekindled following the ending of conflict in Northern Ireland.
