1. Since the referendum I've been advising every Brit that'll listen that if they qualify, apply for an Irish passport asap. If your grandfather, grandmother, mother, father was Irish then you qualify. Go for it; it could be the best decision you ever made. Obviously, you won't be telling as much Irish jokes as hitherto.

2. If you haven't applied for an Irish passport, no sweat. I reckon Brexit won't happen. When all is said and done, there is often more said than done.

3. 200,000 people residing in the UK have applied for Irish passports and consequently the Irish Passport Office is clogged up. Even we Irish have to wait months for renewals. Both my grandfathers were from Essex, but for some reason that doesn't qualify me to apply for a British passport. Perhaps this is some kind of Thank-You for many in the UK qualifying to play for the Republic of Ireland. Thank you for Zinadene Kilbane.

I am in the position where I could claim an Irish passport as my mother was Irish. However that would only allow me to stay in the event of no deal but it wouldn't give me free healthcare or the state pension increase rights so don't really see the point? British citizenship with a deal is the best way as both of those rights are then covered also who is to say in event of no deal that bi lateral agreements aren't made to cover such things outside of the deal on offer? As always wait and see

People here take it as a given to be a part of the EU, and on the surface it all seems plausible and so cannot understand the turmoil that Britain is going through.
But there is an agenda which I am very uncomfortable with, hence my reason for voting leave.

Oh I knew it was a typo, but I thought s'he meant Brisket. I have a great deal of animosity about brisket.

Brisket's quite nice if it's corned (salted), boiled and served with boiled spuds and cabbage

Closing the thread as no-one is respecting a new members question.
