European Union citizens have
a tremendous number of rights throughout the EU. Essentially,
EU citizens have all the rights of an Irish citizen except some voting privileges (constitutional referenda are only available to Irish citizens).
The EU has produced a number
of Web pages, factsheets and booklets about the rights of European Citizens. Europa is the main access
point for information about Eurpean Union. This is a huge site. Included within its compendious information is an entire sub-site about the rights of EU citizens. This is the most useful portion for those of you planning a move to Ireland.
Europa has sections on
- Working in Europe
- Education and study
- Living in Europe
- Travelling in Europe
- Consumer Protection
- European Citizenship and Diplomatic Protection
- Setting up and Running a Business in Europe
The Full Site has much more, including sections on Social Welfare, Pensions, etc.
