Record number of Britons seeking Irish passports ahead of Brexit

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... -of-brexit

Of course (according to ppauper) if Ireland rejoined the UK then this would not be necessary.

AFAIR there was a rule whereby if your parent was born in NI and you were born before 1948 then you could apply for a British passport.

He was only doing his job.
One of my Eaton friends comes from a family that were Cromwell' rentmasters. I would draw up a list of the erstwhile absentee landlords, like Boycott and such like.

Although, you must admit, there is a crowd that would prefer it to be 1819.

6 million Britons are entitled to an Irish passport. I suppose due diligence re. surnames is in order.
