All you need -married to an Irish Person

I copied this from another motorhome site . Perhaps some more knowledgeable member could tell me if it means what I think it means and if it is still applicable in 2021.

"Well who said being married to an Irish National with an Irish Passport wasn’t a good thing - no 90/180 days restriction to us if we want .... thanks Directive 2004/38/EC of the European Council - just add Marriage Certificate to the list of things to take with us"

Yes I have heard this as well.

Something about not splitting up families................she want to travel and, of course, does not want to be separated from other members of her family ie me........................ so I can go too.

Can't believe it's going to be that easy.....then again there are lots of things I didn't believe that have happened over the last few years.

Spooky travelled with us for 5 years and over 20,000 miles.He died aged 11 and is buried in Delphi in Greece.
Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

The best things in Life...........................are not Things !!

Life is really, really great …...........sometimes it's a bit sh*t............and then you die !!

Interesting Alan. I had a look at the directive and found this "
Family members should be legally safeguarded in the event of the death of the Union citizen, divorce, annulment of marriage or termination of a registered partnership. With due regard for family life and human dignity, and in certain conditions to guard against abuse, measures should therefore be taken to ensure that in such circumstances family members already residing within the territory of the host Member State retain their right of residence exclusively on a personal basis." which sounds hopeful for my own situation (widow of a NI-born man, but one who never had an Irish passport.)

However, who knows if this is still current.

Might ask my MP who's a lawyer.

I looked up that directive too but it became confusing in it's entirety so I was hoping that there is someone on here capable of deciphering all that legal jargon down to a simple answer.

May I suggest you also take your detailed query up with Simon Coveney’s office, I’ve previously found them most helpful with similar queries.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

No.6, “Alan” = Gretchibald in this instance, AKA No.7.
