    a moment for all of you to cherish It is also a solemn event for this State in granting it As Minister for Justice and Equality I am in law given the duty of deciding who should be awarded the privilege of citizenship In doing so I have to carefully apply the citizenship laws enacted by our Parliament and consider the individual circumstances of those who seek Irish citizenship I take that duty very seriously as I am acting on behalf of all Irish people in deciding who should be granted the privilege of Irish citizenship That is why within days of becoming Minister in March I decided that we as a State needed to do more a lot more to mark in a formal way the significance of the granting of citizenship We do not award citizenship lightly and it is right that it s granting is marked by a sense of occasion that serves to underscore its importance to you the person receiving it and to us who on behalf of the people of Ireland grant it to you You have waited a long time for this moment too long in many cases You came to our country and chose to live among us we welcome you and we hope that you will continue to contribute to our communities to our neighbourhood and to our society As a people we have been enriched by your presence and in making you citizens of our ancient and proud land we are acknowledging that contribution I intend today s pilot ceremony to be the first of many such events Our ceremony today is greatly enhanced by the presence of Bryan McMahon a highly respected lawyer and very recently retired High Court Judge and a greatly respected patron of the arts Bryan will lend great dignity to the proceedings in his role as presiding officer and his presence will signify in a very public way the importance of the occasion I want to thank you most sincerely Bryan for taking on this task I also want to thank the Band of the 4 th Western Brigade conducted by Captain Declan Whitston for joining us today for this important ceremony As Minister of two important government departments Justice and Equality and also Defence I appreciate the cooperation and interaction that takes place between both of my Departments and between An Gardai Siochana and our Defence Forces The Army Band s presence today is an important symbolic contribution to our proceedings I also want to thank my Department of Justice officials who have organised today s event I referred earlier to the length of time that many of you here today will have waited for your citizenship applications to be processed When the new Government came into office on 9 th March there was a backlog of approximately 22 000 citizenship applications awaiting decision approximately 17 000 of which had been waiting for in excess of 6 months with an average waiting time of
