Irish Indo – Chinese ruling 'justifies decision’ on poll.
Now this is the type of thing I detest about it. People who want to live here should not do this, when the time is right, they should apply for citizenship. Heck my dad was one of the first Chinese person in Limerick to apply for citizenship, now that was a long, long time ago. And when my dad married my mom, my mom applied for citizenship soon after she came to Ireland. Same with my relations. Why this round-about route. It’s not the right way, and there is no excuse.

Maybe I am ignorant, just read things and opinionated myself without looking further, but do please comment if you think about the decision of residency rights, and citizenship in Ireland. Maybe the law has changed since then, and I know at the moment, there will be vote on this as well, and will affect many who are hard-working folks here.
