    The shamrock in the circular field is tattooed 3 inches high on the inside of my right forearm – celtic cross in red, orange, green and white on the left. Ah, declaration.

    Are you Irish?

    I’m going to apply for citizenship. Seems that anyone who can prove they have a parent, grandparent, or great-grandparent who was an Irish citizen can claim Irish citizenship.

    I long to be an ex-pat.

  3. Are you really going to apply for citizenship?

    I’m Irish by heritage. But if all I need is a great-grandparent, then I’m in for applying for citizenship too. Yes!!!

    I’m such an ex-pat at heart. Give me Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Joyce, Stein, Morrison, Davis, and Montmartre on a beautiful spring day. Aah, paradise!

    Oh, I’m applying. I’ve gotten the info on how to go about it, and I’m going to do it when I get my tax return this year. I have to get my grandmother’s death certificate – she was born in Ireland, which makes my mom automatically eligible for citizenship, which means that technically, I am eligible too. It’s in the Irish Constitution – anyone born in Ireland is automatically a citizen, and anyone born of an Irish citizen is automatically a citizen as well.

    My daughter can claim citizenship through me, and if Mr B and I officially marry, he can get citizenship in 5 years. And then you get all those lovely socialist bennies, free medicine and free college with a living stipend!! And live anywhere in the EU.

    Plus, I have tons of relations in the south of Ireland, on the coast, and they’ve extended invitations to visit on many occasions.

    It’s funny, I’m English, Swedish and German too but I only feel connected to my Irish roots.
