If he also has citizenship of Egypt, no. I think it likely he considers himself an Arab rather than Irish anyway. Would he be as eager to get involved in a political conflict in Ireland that had nothing to do with Arab or Muslim issues? I doubt it very much. I'd say he would neither know nor care what the Irish conflict was over, just as the majority of Irish people feel about the Egyptian situation.
Grand so, we can close the thread, you are intimately knowledgeable of this bloke and his political beliefs, which fail the test. Throw away they key
Being born in Ireland does not guarantee Irish citizenship. Being born to an Irish parent does. Fitzpatrick was an Irish citizenship at birth. Doesn't matter where he was born. Southern Yemen or West Cork. He was is an Irish born citizen.
No he wasn't. He applied for it on death row.
And being born when Ibrahim Halawa was born did gurantee citizenship, which he has had since birth.
Legally, Fitzpatrick was an Irish citizen at birth. His ma was Irish born. He just never bothered applying for a passport until he got a date with oul sparky.
Grand. We hear you. You don't like him or the thread so you decide to bring in something to 'prove' your point.
Now f*ck off.

Hence, he must take some personal responsibility here. Would you have gone to Cairo at the time? I wouldn't.
I'd agree regarding personal responsibility, but that doesn't change the fact that an Irish citizen may be subjected to torture, violations of his human rights etc. Guy did what he thought was right.
As others have said, if he was a f*cking scumbag drug mule female the media would be all over it. Personally I'm glad that clown is going to an NI jail and not back to the ROI. F*ck her and that other clown, they should have gotten longer sentences and stayed where they were.
if one plays with fire and get burned, who is to blame, just suppose for instaance he was not lifted for taking part in a banned demonstration, would he now be with isis, presuming the irish goverment got him released, what are the chances of him turning up somewhere else where there is trouble,
