A further seven citizenship ceremonies are to be held in Dublin today as over 2,250 people from 110 countries across five continents this week joining the ranks of Irish passport holders.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny yesterday attended some of the ceremonies at Cathal Brugha Barracks in Rathmines, at which he called on the nation's newest citizens to "enrich our lives with what you have to offer.”

The ceremonies, which were introduced by Minister for Justice Alan Shatter, shortly after his appointment as Minister last June, give proper recognition to the importance of the granting of Irish citizenship.
