2,200 receive citizenship - Are We Finally A Modern Multicultural Nation?
The government, and particulary Minister for Justice Alan Shatter, deserve our gratititude for taking on board the backlog of cases for the granting of citizenship and tapping into the huge potential of the new Irish.

Well done to one and all and a chead mile failte to our new compatriots.
