2,400 New Irish Citizens

The latest Naturalisation ceremony took place today in Killarney, Co Kerry, with around 2,400 people gaining their Irish citizenship.

Included in that number are 309 UK citizens. Sadly I’m not one of them. I’ve been waiting for more than 13 months for my Irish citizenship, and there’s no sign that it’s going to be approved any time soon.

I’ve given up asking for updates on my application to INIS, as I always get the same canned reply which tells me nothing except it’s in progress.
