    all i have to say is that I am very confused.. but obviously not as confused as you! anyway, for your edification and education…

    Sinne Fianna Fáil
    A tá fé gheall ag Éirinn,
    buion dár slua
    Thar toinn do ráinig chugainn,
    Fé mhóid bheith saor.
    Sean tír ár sinsir feasta
    Ní fhagfar fé’n tiorán ná fé’n tráil
    Anocht a théam sa bhearna bhaoil,
    Le gean ar Ghaeil chun báis nó saoil
    Le guna screach fé lámhach na bpiléar
    Seo libh canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann.

    I did it for loads of reasons!

    1. If Jen and me ever move back home it will be quicker for her to get an EU passport through Ireland rather than UK

    2. Traveling – some countries are cheaper for visas etc if you have an Irish passport

    3. It is quicker for children to get Irish passport if I have one before they are born – its just administrative – you never know it might be good for the future!

    4. Why not get it! its an additional passport!!

    Claire – you are telling me I need to learn a whole new language just to sing the national anthem – oh no!!!! Can I now get an Irish language grant!!??
