All passport applications are subject to the provisions of the Passports Act 2008. The Act provides, among other things, that a person must be an Irish citizen before a passport can be issued to him/her. In order to meet this requirement, each person must demonstrate an entitlement to Irish citizenship by providing acceptable documentary evidence of this entitlement.

This is complex case. I have asked my officials to look into the details and I advise that the applicant contact the Passport Service directly to discuss this case at Osal.Kelly@dfa.ie.
