Appearances A Bridge Too Far
The Irish Guard is Ireland's national guard participating in World War II.

In R.U.S.E, this army was under the command of General Horrock of Britain, and composed of an armored division and two infantry divisions. Their objective was to walk over the "red carpet" that the airborne troops had laid by taking Arnhem, Nijimegan, Valkenswaard, and Eindhoven.

However, due to German resistance being much stiffer than expected, they failed to reach Arnhem before the 1st Airborne Division was overwhelmed.
