I can inform the Deputy that a Stamp 6 is placed in the Non EEA passport of a person who is an Irish citizen with dual-citizenship.

As the holder of this permission is an Irish national, they do not fall under the registration requirement outlined in the Immigration Act 2004, and therefore are not issued with an Irish residence card.
