Best Answer

The Royal Irish Regiment is actually a British military regiment and these days is usually composed of soldiers from Northern Ireland however not exclusively. So in regards to joining that particular regiment you would have to find out the UK's stance on American applicants. As for the Irish army i dont think you can without being an Irish citizen, i suppose no more then we can join the American military in the same way.
