There's lots of ways to get Irish citizenship. I'll list them all out:

If you do not have the citizenship of any other country you get Irish citizenship automatically, if you are born in Ireland.

  • If either of your parents already have Irish citizenship, then you are also Irish unless your parent was born abroad and their birth was not reported to the Irish authorities.
  • If you are born in Ireland to British parents, you would be both Irish and British unless your British parents were born outside of Britain, then you would only be Irish.
  • You can naturalize as an Irish citizen after 5 years of legal residence.
  • If your grandparent was born in Ireland, you are entitled to become an Irish citizen.
  • If your great grandparent was born in Ireland, you can become an Irish citizen assuming your parent's birth was registered with the Irish authorities before your birth.
  • Irish citizenship can be passed from generation to generation abroad as long as one registers their birth before the subsequent generation is born.
  • If you were born in Ireland prior to 2005, you became an Irish citizen even if neither of your parents were citizens.

No. You can only gain Irish citizenship from descent if your grandparents were born in Ireland. Unfortunately you seem to have missed by a generation. You could still gain citizenship by actually residing in Ireland.


Yes you can, apply at your country's Irish Embassy, you can apply for Irish Citizenship and a passport.


You can't claim citizenship by a ancestor. My family came from Londonderry Ireland in the 1600's to the Virginia colonies, but I can't get Irish citizenship from Ireland because they were Irish. You have to be born in a country to claim citizenship or have a parent from a country to claim duel citizenship.


Irish, because the Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act of 1956


Potentially, yes. If the child has parents or grandparents who are Irish, then they can. There are lots of other ways that someone can be entitled to Irish citizenship. See the website below.


Yes. See here for details on how to take up citizenship. http://www.dfa.ie/home/index.aspx?id=267


Yes, you are a full Irish citizen, eligible for an Irish passport, a member of the EU.


By law, the Irish government can recommend honorary Irish citizenship for someone who has signalled honour or rendered distinguished service to the nation. The President of Ireland can then officially grant the person honorary Irish citizenship.


Up until recently Irish citizenship laws changed due to overpopulation of illegal immigrants who were claiming citizenship in order to claim welfare, mainly from deprived nations. Before this the law allowed anyone born in Ireland to be a citizen, now this does NOT grant you citizenship.

Not that I'm aware of, although he can claim Irish dual-citizenship as his grandparents were both Irish.

People in Northern Ireland can have British or Irish citizenship.


Yes, both countries allow dual citizenship. However, if you live more than ten years outside Ireland, you will lose your Irish citizenship.


You would be Scottish and could be entitled to Irish citizenship.


Some can hold dual citizenship in Northern Ireland. For the Republic of Ireland, people would be Irish citizens. So most Irish people are not British citizens.



You would be a British citizen, but as your parents are Irish you would also be entitled to Irish citizenship.


If either parent was a citizen of Ireland at the time of the birth, the newborn would automatically be a citizen of Ireland as well.

Yes. My sister moved to Canada and now has duel citizenship. Many Americans with strong ties to places like Israel and Ireland have duel citizenship. Each country has their own laws. If you had a grandparent who was born in Ireland, then you are eligible for Irish citizenship.


If you married to Irish it's 3 years that you have to continously live in Ireland.Otherwise it's 5 years prior you submit your application.However there are backlog in most Irish departments and it's even worst when it comes to immigration/foreighn affair so it takes another 2 years or even more that you will be granted citizenship.

The population of the island of Ireland is about 6 million. Add in a million or two who emigrated over the years and you get to a maximum of about 8.5 million people alive who were born in Ireland. Some Irishpeople are the parents of children who were born elsewhere. These children are not Irish, they are Irish~X (such as Irish~American), although they may be entitled to Irish citizenship. The number of such people is not known, as it is not counted by any official body, Irish or otherwise.around 40 milliom clam to have Irish roots
