I agree with it. A) Can hold passports. B) Can be citizens. C) Often a link to those of here forced away by politics and economics. Likes of Heaslip, Carbery and Dillane hugely welcome to play for Ireland.

To suggest this is wrong shows a complete lack of understanding of emigration, blood-lines, our economic, social and political history, as well as citizenship laws. Without granny rule, no Heaslip, Carbery, Dillane etc.

Jamie Heaslip is the son of Brigadier General Richard Heaslip of the Irish Army. He was born in Caesarea because his father was serving with UNIFIL in Lebanon at the time. He is an Irish citizen and Irish qualified since birth. You don’t know what you’re talking about.

He is an Irish citizen. You are right. Because of his parents, which comes under the granny rule. Your focus on this shows you don't have an overall argument in relation to the point. Thankfully I can see through lawyers.

Granny rule is for non-Irish citizens qualifying through an Irish grandparent. His PARENTS are citizens and therefore so is he. You absolute muppet

Granny rule is for people with a link through parents or grandparents tot qualify for that country. If I pretend someone is kicking a penalty does it get you to close it for a while?

Granny rule is for a link through grandparents for non citizens. If you think a parent is a grandparent under the granny rule, you need to go back to school.

Facts like these that show you can qualify for citizenship through your grandparents? Or just made up "facts" that suit you, baby cakes?

Not that simple as most of those under the granny rule would be entitled to citizenship but didn't go through that process for whatever reason.

But now you admit it's because they're not citizens. Getting there Ewan, fair play.

Except you did. About a number of citizens who qualify as citizens, not under the granny rule. Heaslip, Dillane etc

I said they qualified as Irish through their parents. Had their parents not been Irish, they wouldn't have been.
