Things get somewhat tricky when dual citizenship is involved. If the US went to war with Ireland, to which country ... circumstance, my Irish citizenship is taken from me. I'm in a slightly lesser class of citizenship than most Irish citizens...

That doesn't seem fair. Is it because you have dual citizenship? If you renounced your American citizenship, would you become a full-fledged Irish citizen?

If the consideration was based solely on travel, I'd rather have a diplomatic passport from any country, or a Swiss passport.

They're not always the best choice. When I were a lass I had two passports dip and tourist to be used as needed. Unfortunately I don't remember when I used which.

As I pointed out to Coop a few days ago, a diplomatic passport is a less desirable document to have in one's possession than a personal passport good for years. Your wisest option is not to let everyone on the plane and in the airport know you're an American official, very likely one with a high level security clearance. That's true especially these days, but it was true back in my Navy traveling days, as well. I've had official passports issued to me, but on the advice of some well-traveled co-workers never used them.

I think it is because I'm a nationalized citizen, not someone who has citizenship by virtue of being born here. If I'd married Shirley, I wonder if I'd be in the same status as now. I don't know, but I'm terribly glad I didn't marry the woman.

I don't think so. During the application process the Justice Department never asked, as best I can remember, my US passport number or what I intended to do about my American citizenship. I'm full-fledged enough though since the likelihood that the US will invade Ireland is extremely small, even with a 'war-time' president in the White House.
