    Can’t everyone just be referred to as Brits? (All-inclusive terms work for me.)

      No as the Irish are not British whatsoever as there not part of Britain. 90% of Ireland is a republic and 10% is part of the uk but as you should know uk is not Britain that’s why it says on uk passports Great Britain and Northern Ireland . Why is so hard for so many British to know there own simple geography ?

    “…if you were born before or after 1983…” Mmm, that’s an easy condition to satisfy. However, I don’t think that was what was actually meant; but I can’t think what was meant.

    A child born in the island of Ireland on or after 1 January 2005 is entitled to Irish citizenship if they have a British parent or a parent who is entitled to live in Northern Ireland or the Irish State without restriction on their residency.

    Ok….still confused, perhaps more.

    Just one question: are the people of North Ireland british or not?

    How about England/Britian give Ireland back to the Irish.

      I thought they had done so already, you have a government don’t you ?, a different currency ?, borders .,..how about a refund on my dodgy tarmac drive ? ,..oh no, cant find you !,.. only jokin!, look , the English look down on all Celtic nations ,they only need us in times of war,…they like to poke their noses into! , if you vote for the elites you will get them , thats why Celts and anglos will never be united.

    The English are not “as”British as the Celtic peoples of the UK as there was no England until it was founded after 1066, in reality the British isles was occupied by the Celtic countries , Wales, {then north Wales}Scotland/Picts , West Wales{now part of Devon & Cornwall} Mercia,Wessex, east Anglia {where the name England came from}, so, Wales and Scotland were part of Britannia that the Romans invaded but never completely controlled and were to fight for own rule/independence for hundreds against the conquered parts of Britannia ie Wessex, Mercia,Sussex,Anglia, that became united under a united”Anglian”rule to become England ,…thats how i understand it and have been educated in both England & Wales , in English schools system you learn only English history and “recent” British history, in Wales you are taught both, the Welsh language is the oldest living language in Europe , so that tells its own story right!.

    You can be Welsh and British and Scottish and British! Most people in Wales and Scotland identity as Welsh and Scottish but not British! Britain is a state made up of 3 countries, not a country in itself!
