Irish citizenship for spouse

Post by mnchd » Sun Feb 21, 2021 2:01 pm

I recently got an Irish citizenship. Does my spouse who is also living with me in Ireland for past 5 years can apply for Irish citizenship as technically she is married to an Irish citizen? Or does she have to wait another 3 years to apply it?

Below is what I could find on citizenship for spouse -

You must be married to or in a recognised civil partnership* with the Irish citizen for at least 3 years
You must have had a period of 1 year's continuous reckonable residence - see below - in the island of Ireland immediately before the date of your application, and during the 4 years preceding that, have had a total reckonable residence in the island of Ireland amounting to 2 years. Altogether you must have a total of 3 years reckonable residence out of the last 5 years.
