Tell that to Brian Keenan :) chained to a radiator in Beirut for 4 1/2 years.

Brian Keenan was travelling with both his Irish and British passports when he was kidnapped. It was the Irish Government who campaigned for his release, when he finally was released it was to the then Irish Ambassador Declan Connolly.

Yeah it seems the world takes a wee bit of time ' loving you '.. 4 and a 1/2 years and loads of ' money '  ;)
HH the love was always there, his sisters Elaine and Brenda made sure of that. As for loads of money if he made it fair play to him.

I got mine years ago, that is before there was a European Union. I did have it updated later. It's handy to have one these days, with many people having a problem with American policies.

Unfortunately neither his Irish or British passports saved him. As for the Irish Governments tax payers money spent on his release I have yet to hear/read a single objection to these expenditures by anyone.

For those living in the UK who obtain an irish passport, caution should be exercised. Post Brexit and on returning to the UK, said passport holders may be relegated to the status of `Foreign Nationals`. This area has yet to be formally agreed between the UK and the EU.  :)

"Derry woman in wrangle with UK Home Office fears Brexit could complicate her immigration case"

"The UK Home Office has argued that British immigration laws supercede the Good Friday Agreement."

She was born in Northern Ireland, and has a right under the Good Friday Agreement to identify as either Irish or British or both, but the UK government regards her only as being British, unless she renounces her Irish nationality.

She and her American born husband, who is applying for Northern Irish residence status, had appealed against the Home Office ruling, and had won their appeal,.. the Home Office is now also appealing the case.

Partial quotes,...

"If British immigration laws aren’t compatible with Brexit, which this case suggests they aren’t, that should be changed before Brexit happens, not after, she argues."

"The legal clout that the British government has put up against them suggests to the DeSouzas and their legal team that the appeals will continue right up to the European Court of Justice – but depending on the outcome of Brexit, that court might not have jurisdiction over UK immigration law anymore."

"“The UK government is arguing that the parliament is sovereign and that the Good Friday Agreement is a treaty that has no bearing on UK law,” DeSouza says."

"She says that it doesn’t inspire much confidence in her that the UK government is promising to uphold the Good Friday Agreement after Brexit and protect citizens’ rights, while simultaneously arguing why they’re not important in her case."

"Colin Harvey, a Professor of Human Rights Law in the School of Law at Queen’s University, told TheJournal.ie that the De Souza case highlights a “failure to reflect and respect the basic principles of the Good Friday Agreement fully in domestic law, policy and practice”."
