    Is it that under this government they are making a much bigger deal about it or are we issuing a heck of alot more individuals with citizenship.

    As I posted in my thread title it is beginning to feel like it's been thrown around like confetti.
    Indeed.

    It seems that every second month there is a ceremony of investiture for applicants.
    Is this at the behest of the Department or the Minister?

    The trouble is that Shatter's Dept does not do proper checks on the IDs of many of the claimants

    Thousands of Nigerians who were given Citizen Certs have been refused Irish State Passports

    - because their ID documents are considered to be not up to scratch!

    I fear we are being taken for a ride once again...

    Shatters' dept is both grants citizenship and passports - so its a little mad that one part of the dept accepts a document and another does not - but I have personal experience which proves this to be the case.

    France solves that problem by issuing new French birth certs to people granted french citizenship.

    There is a lot of empty property that has to be rented and the political class owns it. Thousands of the real Irish have left so someone has to fill these empty properties.
