Can you tell me if Irish citizenship if not applied for in the FBR before the birth of my son can still be acquired through 1956 citizen act.
All research keeps informing me my son cannot get citizenship.
My grandmother was Irish, my mother was automatic Irish citizen even though she was born in Singapore when Ireland was under British rule. Singapore was a protectorate. And I myself was born in south Africa and have obtained Irish citizenship through my grandmother born in Ireland.
Now I want my son to apply but I was only registered in FBR in 2013 after his birth.
My grandfather got a an honour medal for bravery in the field in first world war 1915 and was born in england but married to my Irish born
grandmother. Could my son be considered for citizenship through the Token of honour .
