Well said. Totally agree with you.

But is it value for money?

The Irish are a generous and kindly people, thank God!

Think of how things are in East Ireland, where you have to be rich to lookup GRO registrations.

I am always at a loss when the term taxpayer is used. However that is a different matter. I will assume, if you will pardon that assumption, that you mean value for money for the state.

The Irish public service is obliged to abide by the rules and procedures set out in the Public Spending Code. The Government Accounting Unit of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform oversees the code. Anyone with concerns about a particular area of Government spending may address those concerns to that Unit.

West Britain = Ireland

East Ireland = Britain
;D    I'm a resident of North Britain. Fish swimming around Rockall are also claimed to be residents of North Britain. It is not the fish which are claiming citizenship, it is being claimed on their behalf.  If, however,  they can prove they had an Irish grandparent, they will be able to apply for an Irish passport.
