The 27th Amendment
“Notwithstanding any other provision of this Constitution, a person born in the island of Ireland, which includes its islands and seas, who does not have, at the time of the birth of that person, at least one parent who is an Irish citizen or entitled to be an Irish citizen is not entitled to Irish citizenship or nationality, unless provided for by law.”
This is an assault on the rights of children born in Ireland. We need to repeal the 27th and reinstate the right to citizenship for children born in Ireland. To allow them the full rights of any Irish person, to truly "cherish the children of Ireland equally."
It is a xenophobic, populist Amendment which played on peoples fears of the outside world, it needs to go.
We have a vision of a better Ireland, one where our children play together and have the full protections of our country behind them.
