One of the central problems is that Ireland gives out citizenship like condoms at a rock festival. A new 'Irish' citizen need know nothing--zero, Nada, faic-- of the history of Ireland, its geography, its music, its games, its politics, its constitution, it's PR voting system etc etc. Extraordinarily, the new Oirish citizen does not need to understand a word of either of the state's official languages.
A migrant can take the oath of allegiance to Ireland and its values without understanding a word of what s/he is saying.
And weirdest of all, a migrant can take that oath while wearing a hood and mask that conceals his/her identity !
I've read the last paragraph of this post several times... Explain it...
