There were no major attempts made at recruiting any Irish volunteers for the Waffen-SS, and considering that the men from Ireland fighting in the British forces were all volunteers, that is prehaps not surprising. This said, at least two Irish citizens fought in the Waffen-SS: James Brady and Frank Stringer, with a Patrick O'Neill as a possible third.

James Brady and Frank Stringer served in SS-Jagdverband Mitte 1944-1945 and was court-martialled and imprisoned after the war.

A Patrick O'Neill, an Irish doctor, may have served in SS-Sturmbataillon 500, but this has not been confirmed.
