Hi James,

In short - yes. Your mother is entitled to Irish citizenship (even if she did not hold it) and therefore so are you.

The Department of Foreign Affairs can guide you through the whole process, they've got a useful page here:

Be advised that you first have to apply to be entered on the Foreign Births Register which is in itself a complicated process that can involve trying to hunt down a lot of paperwork. Once you've completed that, the process of securing citizenship (and a passport) is quite a bit simpler.

Hope this helps!
