Irish citizenship?

my great grandparents are from Ireland. From what I have read my father can get Irish citizenship because his grandparents are from ireland. I understand that once he gets citizenship that then I can apply because I am his daughter and he is a citizen. Is this true? If not what are the requirements to get citizenship?

    Irish citizenship is not retroactive. You would have to be born AFTER you father was naturalized. Sorry.

    Here is a list of the laws regarding Irish Nationality and citizenship:

    The Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 1956 (No. 26 of 1956)

    The Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 1986 (No. 23 of 1986)

    The Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 1994 (No. 9 of 1994)

    The Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 2001 (No. 15 of 2001) and

    The Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 2004 (No. 38 of 2004)
