Notice 3 | Next Citizenship Ceremonies

The next citizenship ceremonies will take place on Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd March, 2020, at the Killarney Convention Centre in Killarney, Co. Kerry. At the ceremony candidates will take an oath of fidelity to the nation, receive their certificate of naturalisation and thereby become Irish citizens.

Given the volume of e-mails we are currently experiencing, Citizenship Division will not be in a position to respond to e-mail queries about an invitation to the next ceremony.

Invitations will issue in the coming weeks. Please do not contact us in this regard as we are not in a position to confirm invitation at this stage.
