    special resonance for me In becoming our newest Irish citizens it is important that you become a vital member of your community and share your experiences your skills your customs and culture to enrich the fabric of the Irish nation In this way we can ensure that we are a truly enriched and integrated republic Today s ceremony like all those that have gone before it with its pageantry its formality and its lighter moments is a very public expression of the essence of our integration policies There are a number of aspects to this ceremony today some of them are formal in the sense they are a legal requirement and without doing these formalities you cannot become a citizen Other parts of today s ceremony are less formal in that they mark the celebratory nature of this happy occasion And finally today is also about symbolism the things that matter to us such as standing in respect and facing the Tricolour while officials of our State play our national anthem at the completion of the ceremony All of these signal in their own way that this is also an important event for us as the host nation This ceremony is one of three being held here today in which over 2 700 applicants for a certificate of naturalisation will become our newest citizens You will come in here during the day as citizens of 120 different countries with all your different customs your great diversity and your own traditions Many of you have come along in your national colours and costumes adding greatly to the joyful nature of the occasion By this evening you will share one great common unifying bond you will have become Irish citizens For that you deserve a warm round of applause The decision to apply to become an Irish citizen is one I know that you did not take lightly It is also a major event for us as the host nation in bestowing this honour on you My colleague Frances Fitzgerald as Minister for Justice and Equality has the responsibility and duty on behalf of the Irish nation to ensure that the grant of citizenship is given in accordance with the laws of our country Each application is given careful consideration and each decision to grant or indeed to refuse citizenship is taken very seriously indeed Today is a major event in your life and is one which opens up many possibilities to you Perhaps one day you or a child or grandchild of yours could stand here as Minister for Justice or as Judge or perhaps the President of Ireland One way or another all this future potential derives from you becoming a citizen of our country today You will shortly have the same rights the same duties and the same responsibilities as every other Irish citizen We ask you as we ask all our citizens to participate in our communities to be good citizens and to uphold the law Over the

  • All News Items- Speech on the national integration strategy given by Minister Ó Ríordáin
    met with the cross departmental group during these sessions This segment of the consultative process facilitated the highlighting of and in depth discussions on issues of particular concern They also permitted those contributors present the opportunity of imparting their personal experiences to the committee I understand that those who participated in these meetings both from the official side and the non government side found these face to face interactions to be valuable Separate to the above process the cross departmental group also held a series of thematic meetings which addressed particular issues The topics discussed during these meetings included promoting inter cultural awareness and combating racism and xenophobia education social inclusion and access to public services employment and pathways to work and active citizenship In addition suggestions which were made in the context of written contributions have been collated and circulated to the relevant Departments and associated agencies for consideration Work on the development of the updated integration strategy is ongoing and I expect that a draft strategy will be sent to key stakeholders for their observations before the summer with a view to the strategy being published as soon as possible thereafter I hope that the resulting recommendations on migrant integration will form the basis of a new and more comprehensive overarching strategy which is capable of meeting present needs and expected future conditions of society According to Census 2011 we have a situation where non Irish nationals account for more than 500 000 or 12 of the population and where there has been a rapid growth in the non Irish population over the past decade or so We now have people from more than 199 countries living in the State This can pose challenges but it can also provide opportunities There have unfortunately been circumstances where individuals have experienced racism and xenophobia I want to be clear in expressing my views on such behaviour it is not acceptable and we will do everything possible to combat it I am aware there have been calls for the legislation on racism to be reviewed and this issue is a topic which is being looked at by the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice Defence and Equality in terms of its ongoing work on integration multiculturalism and combating racism I fully expect that the legislation to combat racism will be considered in the context of the outcome of the review of the Oireachtas committee and following publication of the Government s integration strategy In the meantime I urge those who are affected by manifestations of racism to report the matter to the appropriate authorities I am aware of the excellent work that NGOs in this sector have been doing in providing support and assistance to those who have been victims of racism and I commend them on this Of equal importance is their advocacy role in opposition to racism and in seeking to keep the focus of Government and of society generally on this problem I am pleased that the motion commends
