	Anyone who has a parent or grandparent born in the Republic
	of Ireland or Northern Ireland can get an Irish passport
	by applying to your local embassy or consulate.  If you are
	considering applying for Irish citizenship, you should in any
	case contact the nearest Irish diplomatic mission to make sure
	you get accurate and up-to-date information.

	You need to have the following :-

	i) For the Irish grandparent, birth certificate and marriage
	license to whoever was the other grandparent of the applicant.

	ii) For the parent (child of the Irish grandparent) birth
	certificate and marriage license to your other parent.

	iii) For you: birth certificate

	ALL of the above documents must have complete details that prove
	the connection.  In other words, the birth certificate must show
	the names, dates of birth and places of birth of both your
	parents, so that they can be conclusively identified to be the
	same person mentioned on the marriage license and their own
	birth certificate.  Irish documents seem to include these
	details automatically, but in the U.S., you may have to contact
	the Vital Statistics Bureau in the state of birth to get an
	official copy containing more details.

	ALL of the documents must be official, i.e., must bear the
	raised stamp of the issuing agency.

	You have to fill out forms, attach photographs and have it all
	witnessed, not by a notary public, but by a "clergyman, high
	school principal, lawyer or bank manager".

	It costs about $160 if you are claiming through your parent(s),
	in addition to the cost of getting copies of the documents. If
	you are claiming citizenship based on your grandparent(s) then
	you need to pay $270 for Registration of Foreign Birth.

	There's about a one-year backlog in processing applications.

I'm looking for information regarding navigable waterways for a 44' fly bridge cruiser for corporate entertainment such as the big horse racing events. I've searched the internet and book stores here in Walws without success.
