I'm in the exact same situation. Moved here for no other reason than because I just wanted to. Don't work here, not even a little bit of Irish blood in me. I moved here 2 weeks ago and today was granted my Permission to Remain. Was not a problem at all but did have to show my bank statements and health insurance information. I don't know about citizenship. All you need is just proof you won't live off the state.

: Is it possible to move to Ireland with these

: you file under with the Irish immigration
