You are most likely entitled to Irish citizenship

Your answers indicate that you are most likely entitled to be an Irish citizen, because one of your parents was born on the island of Ireland. This entitlement is not affected by when or where you were born.

There are some exceptions to this rule, eg if you were born to a foreign diplomat based in Ireland. Read about exceptions in the Irish Nationality and Citizenship Acts.
