I've been half Irish since birth, but just made it official with the citizenship. I got my paperwork back for the Foreign Birth Registry (FBR) in early March. Now I hold dual citizenship with the US…Continue

Title says it all. Irish history is so far outside my comfort zone, I don't know experts from kooks. A nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.  Anybody know a decent title about…Continue

The sacred month approaches. I know I will be at the Dutchess County St. Patrick's day parade this Saturday. Alas, St. Pat's day falls on a Monday, so I won't be able to go into NYC to catch that…Continue

Regarding those agreements, they're fewer and farther between than ever. There's been such an agreement with Canada for as long as anyone can remember but, now, the agreement is that Canadian banks and financial institutions must bring to light dual citizens (Canada-US) who are not paying taxes to the US even though those individuals might have have set foot in the US in decades.

The dual citizenship issue is a complex one. You can become a European citizen and live in any EU country while retaining US citizenship, However the US Government requires its citizens to pay income tax regardless of where you live. There are often agreements with other countries that you don't pay double but you would still have to pay some tax to Uncle Sam.

I am Irish and Polish.   My wife and I have always wanted to go to Ireland but the cost of a trip is so much.

Maybe some day.

Well it wasn't as easy as that, my job prevented me from have a lot of time to access the internet. I've recently switched career paths at work and now have more time for leisure activities.

I'm a Leesider living in Arkansas because of my wife. It's been hard living in a place as foreign as the moon. I find that I've no clue what half the people are talking about and at times I just give up on ever trying to understand. Being in America I find it hard to find out about anything going on back home, because the news here acts like other places don't exist and if they do then they're just another state. I'm hoping this is a place where I can talk to me back home and find out how the Real Capital is.

I'm not Irish myself but I'm a big fan of Ireland's culture and history!

Lads, just to follow on from that barber discussion, you've got to go to the Waldorf Barbershop on Westmoreland Street, its the oldest barbershop in Dublin. It's like stepping back in time in there;


Ask for Liam or Linda.

Ahh!! Men of Irish heritage! People I can relate to.

Good to be here.

I remember the missus mentioning that one. Excellent. Thanks Nick, the mane's due a trim and the hot towel shave is a bonus. I hear words of a brandy and cigar also. Sounds like a fun afternoon with the boys is all set. Will let you know how I get on. Cheers once again.

Introductions are in order!

Greetings!I am Chris and I am 25. I live in Greece and I suppose I am here because I would like to have some meaningful conversations, the kind I, for some reason, get in real life, in day-to-day life.I am studying to become a programmer, I am almost done and starting to think about my actual future in the workforce, while at the same time a lot of my opinions have changed lately. I feel like I'm going through a second puberty... A good thing I suppose, I am becoming a better me! And I would…See More
