Opinion : Proposed PBP Birthright Citizenship Bill grave consequences for Ireland

On Thursday , Mick Barry TD for people before profit brought a Bill before Dail Eireann to re-introduce Birthright Citizenship to Ireland. Barry's Bill entitled "the Irish Nationality and Citizenship Bill 2020" was described by Barry in the Dail as being .... "inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement .. T he Bill will reverse the legislation enacted in 2005 on foot of the 2004 citizenship referendum which was in my opinion, a racist referendum " In Ireland and most other countries around the world , citizenship is inherited through parents not by birthplace , It is based upon the legal principle of jus sanguinis (right of blood) in Roman Law

Lahm: We will pass on our pride to the winners

Lahm: We will pass on our pride to the winners


  • 2014 World Cup winner Lahm will bring Trophy to Luzhniki Stadium

  • The former Germany captain speaks with FIFA.com ahead of Sunday's Final

  • He said: "I am passing on the pride that German football has felt for the past four years"

At Brazil 2014, Philipp Lahm became the first Germany captain in 24 years to lift the FIFA World Cup Trophy a victory that made him one of the most successful players in the history of the beautiful game. Few footballers can boast a trophy collection that includes domestic championship and cup titles, the UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and even the World Cup. Now 34, the full-back announced his retirement from international football after the 2014 triumph and hung up his boots for good three years later.



Lahm will return to footballs biggest stage this Sunday as he bringsthe golden Trophy to Moscows Luzhniki Stadium. "I am passing on the pride that German football has felt for the past four years, the man capped 113 times for his country told FIFA.com. It will be a wistful moment for both us and Germany and an incentive to win the Trophy back."



We caught up with him before this weekends Final between France and Croatia to hear about his excitement at seeing the Trophy again and his thoughts about the defending champions' early exit from Russia 2018.



FIFA.com: You are about to hand over the World Cup Trophy to the new world champions four years after winning it yourself. How do you feel about the prospect of being reunited with it?
Philipp Lahm: Im presenting the Trophy on behalf of the German national team and Germany itself. Well be passing on the pride our country has felt for the last four years about ending this immense and special event as world champions. We will hand over that pride to the winners.



What will be going through your head during the trophy presentation?

Its a fantastic moment because its the original Trophy. In reality, you only hold it in your hands for a moment, and as captain you inevitably think about the players who have lifted it and then passed it on Germany skippers such as Fritz Walter, Franz Beckenbauer and Lothar Matthaus, and international captains like Bobby Moore, Carlos Alberto, Daniel Passarella, Dino Zoff, Diego Maradona, Carlos Dunga, Didier Deschamps, Cafu, Fabio Cannavaro and Iker Casillas.



What memories come to mind when you think about Brazil 2014?

I think about when the final whistle blew at the Final. The minutes from Mario Gotze scoring his goal to the end of the match were the longest of my entire life. I was just thinking: 'Please, please, just blow the whistle' I remember Argentina getting a free-kick just before the end and Lionel Messi firing it over the crossbar. Then Manuel Neuer took a goal kick and the whistle blew. Those last few minutes and the one or two hours after the match will always be the first things I think of.



Carles Puyol passed the Trophy on to you at the Maracana. Who will hold it aloft in Moscow on Sunday?

The match will decide that; theres no way Im picking a favourite. Of course, I can very well imagine Hugo Lloris and what it would mean for France and above all the players to follow in Deschamps and Zidanes footsteps. The same is true for Luka Modric and Croatia, who are in a World Cup Final for the first time in their history.
