I am French and I have been living in Ireland for 7 years. Firstly as a student, then working in the country.
As you probably already know, since July 2019, there is a law that says "This includes 1 year (365 or 366 days) of continuous residence immediately before the date you apply." At first it meant you cannot leave the country WHATSOEVER for a full year, but when this came out, we heard a lot about this rules being reconsidered.
So what I am wondering now is, is it still the case? I know that for none-EU citizens, they can go abroad for about 20 days per year without problem and still get the citizenship through naturalisation. Also, "This includes 1 year of continuous residence" does not really sound clear to me, as when traveling abroad, we actually are still resident of Ireland. I've been going to France about 3 weeks to visit my family in the last year, but no other travels, do you believe my application could go through?
Thank you in advance for your help.
