Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform
Question 402: To ask the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform when a decision will be made on an application for Irish citizenship by a person (details supplied) in County Limerick; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [12818/06]
A declaration of Irish citizenship as post-nuptial citizenship on foot of her marriage to an Irish citizen was lodged in the citizenship section of my Department by the person in question on 12 January 2005.
The declaration was examined recently and was deemed to be in order. A letter informing the person in question of this and requesting the statutory fee is due to be issued in the coming days. A certificate confirming that the person concerned is an Irish citizen will be issued as soon as possible after receipt of the fee.
