Default Applying for Citizenship?

Hey guys i just applied for NZ citizenship, im a dual citizen of both Ireland and the UK which i included in my application. Do I have to renounce one of my citizenships to become a NZ citizen and if so do they request me to do so during the process or should I do it? Cheers

NZ allows dual or multi citizenship so wont force you to renounce any citizenship.
If the citizenships you hold have a rule that you cant also be a citizen of NZ then you'll have to renounce that citizenship to become an NZ citizen. If UK and Ireland also allow dual/multi then no issues and I beleive they both do.

No & I do not know why you would be concerned given the questions and application. I hold 3 citizenships.

Thank you, I was always under the impression you could only have up to dual citizenship
