Yes, Jack's Irish accent would be immediately obvious to a Brit. People have different abilities to recognise and place accents but at a broad level I think everyone would recognise Irish, Scottish, Welsh and northern/southern England. Damien uses a stronger accent for Paddy in Tiger Raid but you might recognise similarities with Jack's accent if you get tuned in.

My first reaction to Gary in Suspects 5 was "did somebody in casting say 'right, we've got Damien and Lenora, now we just need a bloke with a Derby accent'?" biggrin That may well have passed you by - Tom in BH and Gary in Suspects have the same accent. Actually, BH is probably a good place for accent spotting. Of the main characters, Mitchell is Irish, Annie and George are from the south of England, Hal speaks with "Received Pronunciation", Tom is from Derby (East Midlands) and Alex is Scottish. There are obviously identifiable accents for more minor characters too - e.g. Daisy is Scottish, Kara is from Devon/West Country, Seth is from Manchester.

It's difficult for most people to be convincing in an accent that's not their natural one so Damien playing Foster with a Cockney accent just as convincingly as Hal with RP and Jack etc with his native Irish accent is pretty impressive!

Ah, thank you for the little accent-clarification. I've already wondered where Tom (or his accent) comes from. I do not understand a word when he speaks. It's the same with Alex.
And by the way, I find Gary absolutely great.
