A horrific ending to a missing person's case...

https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/news/body-found-in-search-for-irishwoman-33-missing-in-india-for-one-month-36830272.html

"Liga, who is originally from Latvia but has been living in Dublin for the past five years, was last seen on March 14".

Is it right for the Independent to refer to Ms. Skromane as an Irishwoman when she is in fact Latvian?
I clicked on the story because it stated "Irishwoman" in the title.

Is this just a ploy to get people to click on the story or are we being conditioned to start calling immigrants that live in Ireland Irish whether or not they were actually born here?

*Just to note that Independent.ie edited the title of the online article to read "Body found in search for woman (33) missing in India for one month" 1 day after originally posting the article.

OP, can you FGS stop dragging your interminable obsessions with immigration into something as tragic and upsetting as the death of a young woman?

You are insane.

That would a mitigating factor. But they're just plain sh*tty excuses for human beings.

Here for five years - described as Irish. Husband is Irish. Im no detective, but I think she might have been an Irish citizen. Not sure why that fact is important though.

RIP. Sad case.

This is indeed a very sad case.
All of us must die someday and to go missing just before you die just adds to the grief of the bereaved.
Life can be cruel.

Well her husband is Irish so I dont know maybe she got citizenship that way?~

Anyway its tragic and a reminder of how dangerous India seems to be for women lately.

She was most likely raped and murdered. India is not a place for the solo female traveller.

I read there last week that her husband was worried she'd had her organs taken.

Very sad. She goes out there to do some healing stuff and then this happens, terrible.

This hopefully will serve as a warning to people to stay away from India and it's "spirituality". I knew a girl who went over there to do volunteer work as a fluffy bunny and rainbows type of "Evangelical" and came back a morbid Calvinist. I don't understand the impulse of so many westerners to romanticize the place.

OP is a clown.

She was probably an Irish citizen having been married to an Irishman. Not that it matters.

It seems Hindu radicals may be involved in some attacks on women judging by their supporters protests against recent rape trials. Whether that was the case here we don't know.

RIP, so very sad. Her husband had campaigned at home and in India in an effort to locate her. Sympathies to him, family and friends.

No, you are all clowns.

You don't just get Irish Citizenship because you are married to someone who is Irish.

To get Irish Citizenship you have to pay out something in the region of €1200 if you are an EU Citizen and meet the requirements, being a spouse does grant you that right.

However, it is very unlikely that someone would shell out €1200 just to get a piece of paper that gives them exactly the same rights as they already have being an EU citizen.

The OP question is valid because it's asking a fundamental question, was this woman Irish YES/NO, if no why is the paper claiming her to be Irish, click bait or a process to soften us up to accept the normality of Irish people being all different nationalities?

Nobody is saying this woman's death isn't horrific, nobody is not saying RIP, there is a right to ask why this woman is being called Irish if she is not. All likelihood would suggest she isn't unless they have indeed paid 1200 for a piece of paper.
