Hi, As far I know, being born in Ireland...………
It is only from the male line, NOT the female.

My father can claim Irish citizenship though either of his paternal grandparents but if he was going to do so would probably link claim to grandmother since we have her baptismal record and much better paperwork trail to her and her family.

So the person who I know applied last year was given incorrect info.
Well well, I will contact them and let them know.
Thanks

Discrimination on grounds of gender is illegal, perhaps your friends case wasn't quite as straight forward as it first appeared.

My grandmother was born in Dublin, so I could apply for citizenship on those grounds.  However, if I was granted citizenship, my children would still not be entitled to it.  That’s the way I interpreted the info on their website when I was interested in doing this...but maybe I am wrong.

Any children you have BEFORE becoming an Irish citizen would not be entitled to same but children born AFTER would be.

My husbands grandmother was born in Ireland, but claiming citizenship/passport through her might be a tad difficult, as the family weren’t known for regularising their relationships and creating a paper trail!

Same here. Unless the Irish government senses an opportunity and changes things.
