Written answers (Question to Health)

The provisions of Parts 2 and 3 of the Children and Family Relationships Act 2015, which fall within the remit of my Department, relate to children born within the State. As the scenario which the Deputy describes relates explicitly to a child born outside of the State, the provisions of the Irish Nationality and Citizenship Act 2004 will apply.
