When did it change that you had to live in Ireland to obtain citizenship if you are a spouse of the citizen?

Irish team from Dublin comint to US to particpate in the State of Florida Student Astronaut Challenge
I am the director of the Student Astronaut Challenge held each year at the Kennedy Space Center. This program is sponsored by FSU and NASA. This year a guest team from Dublin, Ireland will be flying to the US to compete. To help support this visit FSU is paying their registration fees, hotel stay in Titusville and transportation. We are looking for an individual or group that would be interested in helping us raise money to send the lads to Universal for the day during their visit. Please contact Peter Carafano ( if you have any suggestions or are willing to help.

Working holiday authorization
My daughter will be traveling to Ireland on Jan. 9th for 5 months for an internship.
Is the office in Pittsburgh able to process her extended stay work authorization, or do we need to go to Chicago?

Answering Jennifer
Hi Jennifer.
You are entitled (I believe) to an Irish passport based on your grandfather having been an Irish citizen. You will need his birth certificate and possibly his marriage certificate to establish the connection between you both. Then you can apply directly on any Irish consulate website (like this one) and begin the process. It is detailed and long so be prepared for the length of time and effort it will entail to achieve your goal of an Irish passport. Well worth the time though! Good Luck!!
