    So what are the travellers worried about then?

    What makes you think that? Irish are EU citizens.

    Sure why would the British want to deport Travellers when they could share even more of them like this charming fellow who hacked up another Traveller family with a machete in the middle of the night while they slept, the youngest was 11 years old.

    Ok but isn't that with regard to Irish citizens(only). It doesn't account for Irish citizens who're also EU citizens? It was enacted when Ireland wasn't in the EU and it didn't matter when both were in EU. It might be unworkable if people start getting Irish citizenship to get into the UK? Immigration being 1 of the big reasons for Brexit.

    That's right.

    Things were OK when the UK and the ROI both had the same status with respect to the various European entities.

    Everyone's worried. Some with good reason. Others unnecessarily so.

    It won't change because it doesn't have to.

    People were already getting Irish citizenship in order to get into the UK and EU.
