    Getting Irish Citizenship has a number of advantages.
    For a start you will be able to pass Customs within the
    European Union much easier than before and if you are
    interested in working within the EU then having a passport
    of an EU country will make things a lot easier. There
    are potential Health and Welfare benefits also.

    Eligiblity: If you have 1 or more Irish born parents then
    you are automatically considered a citizen and can apply
    for a Passport straight away. A person will be eligible
    if one of thier grandparents was Irish and possibly even
    if one of their great-grandparents was Irish. You can also
    apply for citizenship if you are the child of a naturalised
    Irish citizen, providing you were born after your parent
    was naturalized. Marrying an Irish citizen is another route
    whereby citizenship may possibly be obtained.

    If you are a U.S. citizen you can apply directly to The
    Embassy of Ireland, 2234 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W.,
    Washington, DC, 20008, (202) 462-3939 or to any of the
    Consulate Offices of Ireland, a full listing of which is
    avaible by going here:

    Documentation: You will need to supply the long version of
    your Birth Certificate and those of any relatives that you
    are claiming citizenship through. Marraige and Death
    certificates where applicable will be required. You will
    also need to provide extensive proof of you own identity
    (Passport, Driving License, Work Identification card, etc.).
    You will need 2 Passport size photographs.

    There is a fee of up to US$179 for adults, US$64 for
    applicants under 18 years of age. The hardest part of the
    process is collecting the required documentation,
    especially the Birth certificates of relatives (Grandparents
    who may be deceased, etc.). You will not in any way jeopardise
    your currently held Citizenship or Passport status by
    holding 'dual' citizenship. To get the process started,
    contact the Irish Consulate in your country, (details from here: http://www.irlgov.ie/iveagh/foreignaffairs/embassy/altindex.htm ).
