No. Irrational does not necessarily imply normal. Take for instance
the irrational number (decimal expansion):
This number does not terminate and does not repeat, so therefore it is
irrational. However, it clearly does not have a normal distribution for
all digits (or indeed even for the only two decimal digits which
appear). Thus it is irrational, but not normal.
