  • Extended description

    Fatima talks about the ceremony, what Irish citizenship means to her and the process of becoming an Irish citizen. At a cost of €950, it took Fatima four years of applications, red tape and waiting to become a citizen of Ireland.

    Over two days of ceremonies, 2,000 immigrants were given naturalisation as Irish citizens. Minister Alan Shatter attended the ceremony, which was followed by a reception for the new citizens.
