Brexit made me become Irish Watch

    where is your sense of patriotism???
    I love Britain, but it's genuinely hard to feel patriotic about a country where people can be misdirected and lied to as much as they were during the EU referendum, by cravenly self-interested right wing forces who don't care a fig for the welfare of the British people.

    You may be unaware for example that offshored hedge funds that specialise in chaos and turbulence were major backers of the Brexit campaigns. Perhaps you also would be interested to hear that the Tories are heavily sponsored by Tate & Lyle, which wants us to leave the EU to consume the Caribbean sugar they sell. So when 50% of our economy is going down the drain in the no-deal Brexit, these hedge funds and sugar magnates will be partying with the Tory right wingers they pay for.

    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?

    I'd love to do this too as all 4 of my grandparents are Irish however, I have one slight concern. If I get dual citizenship, will places like America/Australia be harder for me to enter? Sometimes they can have very strict border rules.

    Dual British/Irish is not a problem.

    Really?! That's great to hear! How would it work when flying to the States for instance? Which passport would I travel on (would I get to keep both?)?

    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?
    Yes, see below.

    I want to get my Irish citizenship as my nan was Irish but we don't have her birth certificate and your form never came through to me
    I had to send off for my nan's birth certificate (and marriage certificate). It was actually really easy and much, much less expensive than I thought (only £8 for birth cert)! :eek:

    People getting Irish passports should have to declare loyalty to the island, support a united Ireland and chuck out their British passport. But one can only dream

    Congratulations op, I'm from Norn Iron so I have two passports and also a newfound sense of smugness on the topic of Brexit. N.I voted remain, the UK voted leave, yet we're still members of the EU!

    It's like watching your favourite team win due to the other scoring an own goal.
