Why you should apply to become Irish citizenship

An application to become a citizen of Ireland has been made to the Irish Parliament by an Irish man who has applied for Irish citizenship for the first time.

The application for Irish citizenship was made to Irish lawmakers by John O’Sullivan, a US citizen, on Friday.

The man is now seeking Irish citizenship after moving to Ireland from the United States where he is a permanent resident.

The Irish Government has said it is looking at how to make Irish citizens eligible for Irish passports.
