June 5, 2019 -- Die Zahl der britischen Anträge für einen irischen Reisepass hat sich seit dem Brexit Referendum im Juni 2016 mehr als verdoppelt.

Almost 100,000 Britons sought to hang onto their EU citizenship via a passport from their nearest neighbour in 2018, up from 46,000 in 2015, the year before the Brexit vote led to a sharp rise in applications.

This year, more than 37,000 Britons applied for an Irish passport from January to March, with numbers expected to rise during the latter half of the year.

Anybody born in the Irish Republic or Northern Ireland, or with an Irish parent or grandparent, is entitled to an Irish passport - a total of about 6 million British citizens. Dual citizenship permitted.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
