If you are born to an Irish parent, you are, de-facto an Irish citizen.Betcha didnt know that, eh?

Do you mean eligible to apply for Irish citizenship? My mother was born in Longford in 1917. So I guess she was technically a British subject. What do you think my chances are?

If your dad is Irish, so are you. In the eyes of the law. You are an Irish citizen. You dont even need to apply for it. If you are born to an Irish parent, you are, de-facto an Irish citizen.Betcha didnt know that, eh?

no RN, I did not know that, thanks for the info. But I am still just another Brit as far as you lot are concerned, eh?..;)

You can get an Irish passport no problem.

But I am still just another Brit as far as you lot are concerned, eh?..;)

If you talk road numbers and all then yes you would be seen as British (but that is not a bad thing, being British I mean, the road number thing is bad and you shouldn't do it)

A russian born man most certainly can become a taiwanese citizen- their slavic ethnicity doesn't change but their citizenship does.

If you met a lad in a pub and he introduced himself as Vlad from Taiwan, with an accent like a bond villain, would you take him seriously?

What do you think my chances are?

Get her birth, marriage and death cert along with your birth cert and identification and head to your nearest embassy.

You are not applying for a passport, you are obtaining your birth right.

Poland (and Polish-born people) couldn't care less about people like me anyway - we're just "Angole" to them. It's sad that Poles feel this way, as not all nations consider their descendants like this; but that's the way it is, and I don't lose sleep over it.

You're not truly a Pole unless you live there suffering with the rest of them. That's more or less how it is.

Kinda like the guy that continues rooting for a $hitty sports team because he's waiting for the day they win the championship so he can say, "I've been a fan for years, even when they sucked. I'm a REAL fan."

But here's one for you: a Canadian who lives in Canada on money which h he extracts from the Canadian government is a what? I'd be thinking that he is very much a Canadian.

The west is a different ballgame. A sad exception to the rule.

sad?! There is nothing which legally compels 'Poles' to claim welfare in the west, out to take foreign citizenship.

It was just a silly joke no harm meant, Ireland is smaller and giving directions easier for eg you would say take the Galway road or more likely say go to Monaghan then Sligo then down to Galway. None of that junction 13 on the M9 then the A4432 to where you join the M63 as far as junction 4 etc business. Its just one of those cultural things that sounds funny.

So I'd say that I'm patriotic towards the UK, not Poland.

Seems to me that they are right about you.
Problem?

What would you know you are Yank are you not?

Kind of, but not quite.

The correct analogy would be what you said, but only if your mum and dad played for the team ;)

lol. thanks for that, I had no idea either!

That sort of thing p*sses me off, too - when I'm driving on the M60 and it says "Delays - M56 J5" on the warning sign, I'm like "where the **** is that", but if the sign said "Delays - M56 Hale/Wilmslow exit" I'd know whether it affects me or not lol :D

It kills me how you continue to make comments about the things I say about Polish people, claiming that I somehow wouldn't know what I'm talking about because I'm American, yet you (a Polish guy) spend most of your time on this forum making comments about the USA. I lived in Poland for 4 years, I think I learned a thing or two about Polish people during my stay. I'm also married to a Pole. No, not a Pol-Am, a "real" Pole that came to the states with me just last year. How long did you live in the USA? What makes you qualified, yet I am not?

My guess would be the same amount of time that he has lived in Poland.

Just reading your comments to test my English, and to see what is going on out there. I wish I didn’t understand some of your nonsense. - I can see that some of you should perhaps restrict their commends to cut and paste from Wikipedia. "Despite the fact that they came from Austria-Hungary and not Poland?” – this is the most ignorant, stupid, insulting and insensitive commend an uneducated foreign idiot can make when commenting on Poland’s affairs. All my ancestors come from south of the country - Galicja, my grandparents, (who remembered ksiaże Franciszek Józef) did not for a moment stop being POLISH because of administrative change, and I am sure that I have NO trace of “Austro-Hungarian” blood in me (sarcasm), and I do not think that over 100 years of Austro-Hungarian presence on our lands would be sufficient to apply for Austrian citizenship since we were not Polish at that time in the opinion of your forum wise person.(sarcasm) Krakow was at the time of the partition the pearl of Polish culture, and our Polish culture flourish and survived thanks to Us feeling and being Polish and fighting for our Poland in all three partition. “delsomething” o whotsyourname do some research next time you decide to pontificate on subject you have little understanding of.

BraveRedHusar - good on your!!!!!
