Newsline: Irish embassy in London hit by record demand for citizenship

The Irish Independent has today reported that the rush for Irish citizenship and passports in the UK reached a record high on the day British Prime Minister Theresa May signed the document paving the way for Britain’s exit from the European Union. Demand for Irish passports from people with Irish heritage in the UK soared by 94%. The surge in Irish passports from those living here has prompted the Irish Government to look to hire consultants to forecast the likely demand as the country’s exit from the EU nears. It has been estimated that there are 6.7 million people in the UK who are eligible to apply for an Irish passport.
