If somebody is from outside Ireland and is claiming they are Irish by parentage I think they may need a passport to prove the claims. Although that is not related to residency rules of course.

If you mean they are claiming to be Irish Eligible (as per IRB) then their claim on an Irish passport is not relevant. They need to prove their ancestors place of birth.

The fact that in the majority of cases being IRB eligible would also deem them eligible for a RoI passport is purely a happy coincidence.

I knew the Irish republican brotherhood would be playing a fecking hand here.


Apart from that, thanks BR - I've been helped.

My boy is now seven. Has been playing rugby for 3 years and is on track to be 2m tall when grown. Holds an NZ passport.

I left Belfast in 1989; so if in 15 years he's still playing, and he's any good, should he qualify for Ulster on some tenuous blood connection or have to wait another 5 years for residency?

Well assuming you are from here, he's qualified on your passport immediately without any residency.
Don't know if I'd call that tenuous. Depends how he identifies himself. If he regards himself as ethnically Irish then he's Irish. Angus Curtis is joining us having declared that he wanted to play for Ireland but was born in Zimbabwe and lived in South Africa. Hard to argue with that.

If he's any good why would he want to play for Ulster? >EW
