<< How difficult is it for someone to become an Irish citizen (dual
citizenship) if the ancestor who came over is the great-great-grandparent.
(Don't laugh!) This has been one of my dreams, to hold dual citizenship.
I want it so bad I can taste it!
The Foreign Births Entry Book is the legal means for Irish citizenship, but
the ancestral link must be at the grandparent level....beyond that, its a
"simple" process of supplying various documents and $185....
Birth Ceritificate of GrandParent
Marriage Certificate of GrandParent
Death Certificate of GrandParent
Birth Certificate of Parent
Marriage Certificate of Parent
Baptismal Certificate of Parent
Birth Certificate of Applicant
Baptismal Certificate of Applicant

thought for sure I was going to have to do about a thousand rosaries for 30
absence from the confessional to get them, but hey! The Church has records...
and procurred them easily from the local churches in question.....
