I am from the republic of Ireland.
I have not had a job for 6 years, I am perfectly happy too be cannon fodder for the arabs if it means I can send money home to my folks who I owe tens of thousands too.

For the last few months I have been applying for thousands of jobs and apparently I am not good enough to flip burgers for BK....

I have visited the Royal Irish Regiment site  but could not find any info,


And yes I am willing too gun down my countrymen if anything kicks off.
Any advice please

Yes I'm sure you can, and plenty of sites seem to confirm that.

They're largely pulling out of deserty places aren't they now? So if you time it right you might get a bit of peace after training until the Argie politicans want another distraction and if they can't get Conway Twitty, it might be Falklands II Silly.

So, liking Penguins might be something you should stick in the "reasons I want to join" box :)

New recruit Anthony Kerins, from Dublin, said he wanted to follow in the footsteps of his great uncle who was in the British Army.
'I always wanted to be a soldier, It’s a life less ordinary, and I wanted to see more of the world, and more people, and action and be trained with the best,' he said.
'I went to the British Army website. I then rang Enniskillen and they sent out the application forms straight away.'

Stop with the suicide talk Gooner, as bad as you might think it is, do you really value your life at a measly 4'000?
When the economy comes good again (which it will believe me, hopefully sooner rather than later), you will make that money back very quickly, a couple of months.

I know you want a quick fix but there is none, this is now the situation you face but it's not that bad. My advice is to tell your parents, you said they will more-than-likely forgive you which sounds like good parents to me, so tell them. Once you tell someone you will feel a small bit of relief straight away. Don't keep this to yourself, the guilt will be too hard to cope, make sure you tell them.

Then ask if you can live with them for a year or so, sign on the dole and save every penny. If you save for a full year you should have roughly 3'500/4'000.

Things will work themselves out mate.
