The Irish Guards (IG), part of the Guards Division, is one of the Foot Guards Regiments of the British Army. Along with The Royal Irish Regiment, it is one of the two Irish regiments remaining in the British Army. The Irish Guards recruit in Northern Ireland and the Irish neighborhoods of major British cities. Although restrictions in the Republic of Ireland's Defence Act make it illegal to induce, procure or persuade enlistment of any citizen of the Republic of Ireland into the military of another state, people from the Republic do enlist in the regiment. Nowadays they recruit from all around the United Kingdom and Commonwealth and recently, the regiment has also seen several "non-traditional" recruits, notably Christopher Muzvuru of Zimbabwe who qualified as a piper before becoming one of the regiment's two fatal casualties in Iraq in 2003.

Irish Guards Boots and Beret which is cast in cold resin bronze and sold mounted on a round display base. This is a great gift idea as the boots and berets make excellent paperweights or simple display ornaments. The Sculpture is scaled at 5" tall.
