    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?)?

    I’m a dual National but my second country isn’t even in Europe, let alone the EU.

    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.

    :rofl:... nah.

    I don't really care whether there's a united Ireland or not to be honest. I dislike Article 8 of the Constitution of Ireland (the bit that says Irish is the national language and English is only the 'second official' language), that would need to go, but apart from that, y'all can do what you like on your island.
