I'd be grateful if someone would be kind enough to tell me the pros and cons of having an Irish passport holder and living in Spain compared to a British passport holder and living in Spain, obviously taking Brexit into consideration. 

Many thanks ☺

An Irish Passport:-

Cons:- None whatsoever if you have an Irish passport.

Pros:- You automatically become/remain a citizen of the EU.

Hi Tricia, as Matthew has said, there are no cons whatsoever.  As an Irish passport holder, you enter Spain as an EU citizen and therefore are subject to regulations for Residencia.  This means you can decide to come and live in Spain whenever you like, you do not have to try and get Residencia before the end of the transition period.

Brexit and it’s effects don’t affect you at all, you lucky lucky person 😁

I've covered this on another thread and I repeat it here just in case anybody is taking Coronavirus-Covid19 lightly.

Prime Minister of Rep of Ireland has decreed:-

1. All schools, universities, child-care facilities must close from tomorrow Friday 13th March until 29th March, at least.

2. People must work from home where possible.

3. All sporting events including main sports to cease until 29th March.

4. No event may have more than 500 people attending in outdoor places.

5. No event indoors may have more than 100 people in attendance.

6. Scotland has followed suit.

________________________________________________________________________ 

For some reason unknown to anybody Mr Johnson is allowing England's universities, schools etc remain open.

For whatever reason Mr Johnson appears to be delaying the inevitable. How many deaths does it take for Mr Johnson to act responsibly?

Thanks Dario, so having an Irish passport is quite beneficial.

Aaaaaaaaand now I’m jealous !!! No, not really - I’m working towards getting my Spanish one; but that really is excellent and I am thrilled that you will suffer no undue Brexit-mess consequence in moving here
