Good Afternoon, Can you please be of assistance. My grandmother was an Irish citizen who came to South Africa as a young girl. She married my grandfather. I obtained an Irish passport as a result. Unfortunately this passport was damaged beyond repair. I would like very much to get a new Irish passport but do not know which documents I must submit in order to do so. Please tell me, if you'd be so kind. Many thanks Alma
