    I was born and grew up in southern England. I used the so-called 'granny rule' to become an Irish citizen after the UK voted to leave the EU. Best £300 I ever spent.

    I'm so relieved that I will retain my right to travel and work freely across Europe no matter what. Plus, it means I can keep studying at EEA universities and not have to pay international fees. I'm available for wedding proposals if you want to marry a paddy and get an EU passport. :smug::lep:

    How are you preparing for Brexit? Are you a dual citizen?

    Right enough!

    Similar to "congrats!"

    (Well that was my intention, but as a non-native speaker it's probably wrong... Airmed)

    for congratulations, it is comhghaideas, but maith go leor is also acceptable as slang.

    I wave my Irish passport in front of all my friends and fellow mods to remind them that I will have and will have not EU citizenship when the UK leaves the EU. :lol:

    Well done. :thumbsup:

    Unfortunately, I don't have any Irish or Euro family to do this.

    Guess I'll have to move to EU after my degree and marry a hot EU babe.

    I’m a dual citizen too, so I’ll still be a EU member after the UK leaves

    My grandad is Irish and I really wanted to apply for Irish citizenship. The issue is that he is 85 and now has pretty bad dementia, he also no longer has a passport and he lost his birth certificate years ago.

    Is there anyway around this?
