The Department of Justice have announced that the next Irish Citizenship Ceremony will be held on the 20th of June 2022 in the Convention Centre, Killarney, Co Kerry.

This is welcome news for the many applicants who have been waiting to be granted their Irish citizenship.  Persons who have received a letter from the Department of Justice notifying them of the intention of the Minister for Justice to grant them Irish citizenship should return the requested documentation and pay the fee without delay in order to be included in the citizenship ceremony.

Delays remain ongoing in the processing of Irish citizenship applications with many persons waiting for over two years for a decision on their application.  Any person who has been waiting for over 2 years for a decision may have grounds to take a Judicial Review case to the High Court seeking an Order of Mandamus to compel the Minister for Justice to issue a decision on their application.
