1) Irish Citizens and their family must provide reasons for travel to Ireland

2) Irish Citizens and their family must show funds and bank statements

This raises a number of questions, do poor Irish citizens have even less rights ? since when do we need to provide reasons to travel to our own home ? these and the other extra conditions and restrictions on Irish Citizens and their family is fundamental reverse discrimination. It is absurd for Irish Public servants and the Dept of Equality to be treating Irish Citizens second class. Other EU citizens and their families are not and cannot be put through such degradation. But the Irish Dept of Equality have decided Irish Citizens should not have equal dignity. Yet these state employees still take a salary and pension on the basis of their service to Irish Citizens.
