4,000 people from 110 countries delighted to receive Irish citizenship via @independent_ie.

SOME had come looking for work and found love as well. Others had found love over the internet and crossed the ocean to settle in Ireland.   How all of the 4,000 people who officially became Ireland’s newest citizens yesterday came to set foot on Irish shores may have varied. Yet, they all had something in common, they had already become just a little bit Irish.
