I will have to wait until Scotland becomes independent so I can get a Scottish passport through my grandad her husband or hope that Wales takes the plunge as both my mother's parents are from there. Not a lot of English connections really.
No be long noo.

Tom, the furthest back you can go to get citizenship of Ireland is a grandparent. Good luck!
Okay - I was adopted but my natural father was Irish - do I qualify???????????

Our family all have Irish passports, as well as British...but when we came to France we produced the British ones for every proof of ID requested, because it was, well...it just easier...

So, I wonder what will happen when/if we decide we want to change our nationality after 10 years. :shock:

But you won’t be changing your nationality, as you’ve always had both. The big advantage of having Irish nationality after Brexit is obvious but I can’t see how not having mentioned it before will be a problem. You will still be exercise freedom of movement to vote in EU elections and if your right to do so is ever questioned you just use your Irish passport as proof.
