Re: Irish citizen siblings is not considered as sufficient based on being the parent of Irish citizen children

To be fair this is a welcome explanation as it clears up how the department understand "Irish Associations". In theory a person could come to Ireland and within nine months apply for citizenship because they had a child with an Irish or British citizen. Not exactly what the law was envisaged for I ...

This is exactly what the current minister has done on the website - to clarify what is and isn’t considered. Yes you are ...

Where does this come from?

Re: Travelling after applying for Citizenship

You will need to notify INIS if the travel is more than 6 weeks even after you applied for citizenship. If it is essential travel they might give it exemption.
