If they are minors then he can apply for them to be naturalized too, but their right to citizenship is not automatically established. Any children born after his naturalization should become citizens automatically.

Congrats to your brother in law. Now, where were the kids born and how old are they?

Just curious, but descendants of people born in Ireland are entitled to Irish passports, so why would these kids not be immediately entitled?

They were born before he became an Irish citizen so they have no automatic rights to anything.

When will the 'new' Irish become the Irish? Surely everything including new citizens has a depreciation?
I hate the term.

Only the children and grandchildren of people born in Ireland. And this man is not from Ireland, neither are his kids (I surmise, anyway). Once he is naturalised, any kids born from here on in would be entitled to passports. But the kids that pre-exist will have to go through a 3 year process if they are minors (and the normal naturalisation process if they are not minors).

I could be wrong, but that's my understanding.

The 'new Irish' is one of thse Celtic Tiger buzzwords offered by mediocrities who speak solely in chichés. Either they are Irish or they are not. If they are not they are more than welcome anyway, but they are still not Irish. Their kids, if born in Ireland, will be.

If they have lived here for 3years then they can apply right away. They will get the result in less than 6months.

The only person who can decide whether you are Irish or not is you. I cannot see people who imprison their women in walking tents and who seek to erode our hard fought for rights and freedoms seeing themselves as new Irish except in an aggressive way where new excludes the old. As for the rest and more valued immigrants I think it honestly takes time for someone to abandon their old identity. I think the kids can become Irish (not this bs suffocating ''new Irish'' term) but the parents will always have a dual identity.

As I understand they have to apply for their own citizenship when they come of age. Its not automatic and no one can apply on their behalf.

It's the same rules that apply to virtually all European citizenships I think. If you'd one parent born in Ireland with Irish citizenship then you're entitled to citizenship even if you were born outside the state. However if your children are then not born in the state, they are not entitled to Irish citizenship.
