If they lived in the EU 3 years prior to enrollment in college, and you paid taxes in Ireland for the previous 3 years they are entitled to the EU fees, which is about half the international student fees, however not as good as 'free' fees which require payment of registration fees only. Generally t...

This must be one of the more ridiculous threads I've read in a long time. 1. Why should your need for assistance determine your eligibility for citizenship? At this stage you have paid your fair share into the system. For example, you can naturalized in the U.S. while claiming benefits. 2. There sho...

That is what I thought as well, but if you read the Immigration Act it states that Irish Association means related by blood , affinity or adoption. So related by blood covers this I think , but I am not a lawyer so I might be interpreting it wrong. Naturalization by Irish Association seems to only ...

I found living in the Netherlands to be boring. People follow the rules, which isnt a bad thing, just boring. Stagnant culture I guess. The Dutch are generally friendly, but they are definately not as tolerant as their reputation would suggest. Having said that, its still a pretty good place to live.

You are selectively quoting a section of the law which is not relevant in your case- In order for you to have become a U.S. citizen you had to live in the U.S. I assume you are still living in the U.S. One of the conditions of naturalisation is that you continue in good faith to reside in Ireland.

Technically they can revoke your citizenship but it is highly unlikely that they will do this. It is very difficult to revoke someones citizenship, don't worry about it.

You dont have to have a job to be eligible for citizenship e.g. the non-EU wife joining her non-EU husband who has an employment permit. In this case both are eligible to be naturalised after 5 years of residence. The obvious exceptions are permission to remain as a student or not having any permis...
