One is eligible for Irish citizenship if one has an Irish grandparent.

If an individual or one of their parents or grandparents was born in Ireland they are eligible for Irish citizenship.

If an individual or one of their parents or grandparents was born in Ireland they are eligible for Irish citizenship.After January 1, 2005, people born in Ireland have parents who are Irish citizens; then they are also an Irish citizen. However, in certain circumstances, some people born in Ireland have to claim Irish citizenship. Under the Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 2004, children born of other foreign national parents on the island of Ireland on or after January 1, 2005, are not automatically entitled to Irish citizenship. The parents must prove that they have a genuine link to Ireland. If one of the grandparents was born in Ireland, but neither of the parents was born in Ireland, the individual may become an Irish citizen. They would need to have their birth registered in the Foreign Births Register.
