Metal detector questions
I'm a retired American that would like to live in Ireland. As such, I'm concerned about what I should do about my metal detectors. I'm informed about your laws and I respect them. The only problem is that your laws prevent me from using my equipment in other countries. I have just returned to America from living 12 years in Thailand. Metal detectors are allowed to be use in Thailand . . . . . only if your Thai. But, I was allow to bring and keep my detectors at home while allowing me to use my detectors out of country. My question is, is there a way for me to bring my detectors with no intention to use them in Ireland? If need be, I would be willing to turn over my detectors upon arrival with the understanding that I can have them back when I decide to travel outside of Ireland. Otherwise, I would not be able to live in Ireland.

Is there a vehicle by which I may become a citizen of Ireland while maintaining my American citizenship? My Grandmother, my mother's mother, was born/raised in Swinford, County Mayo, Ireland. Her name was Margaret Kennedy. My mother's father, James Frain (Frayne) was born in Charlestown, County Mayo, Ireland.
