    Ok.. This is what you need to do

    Change keyboard to USA English
    Phone will restart

    Change region to USA
    Phone will restart

    Change to USA language (it will download language)

    Phone will reset

    MAKE SURE KEYBOARD AND LANGUAGE USA/ENGLISH IS ABOVE ENGLISH ONLY IN THE SETTINGS OR IT WONT WORK

    your now up and running with Cortana *smiles*

    Cortana is only available in the USA with the Windows Phone 8.1 update (unless you put all of your settings to United States). HOWEVER, if you update to Windows Phone 8.1 UPDATE 1 Cortana should be available to all English speaking countries as an "Alpha" stat. You have to make sure your region is in Ireland and your keyboard as either USA or UK, they're some people who say that you need to also change the "Speech" option to either USA English or UK English to have her work.
