I'm eligible for dual citizenship in the Republic of Ireland. Will my US Citizenship be affected by applying for dual citizenship when I'm a US person to begin with? It's not something that I need to do, but I have an appreciation for my heritage and would be interested (along with siblings) in pursuing this if it's not an issue.
Hi there. I am not an expert in Irish immigration law but I found a website for U.S. citizens interested in applying for Irish citizenship that you may find helpful: http://www.aohnewport.org/citizenship.htm. You could also contact the nearest Irish consulate (I'm guessing for you that would be in Chicago - a list of Irish consulates in the US is at the bottom of the link I provided), an Irish immigration attorney and/or a US immigration attorney with special knowledge of Irish immigration laws (via avvo or AILA search). Good luck!
