    On the off chance that either your dad or mom, fatherly/maternal grandma or granddad was an Irish national at the season of your introduction to the world – regardless of the possibility that you and the two guardians were conceived outside the island of Ireland – through your Irish grandparents, you can assert citizenship. You can likewise guarantee double citizenship through marriage.
