Ties that bind

• Your recent editorial 'A big welcome for the new Irish' addresses the recent mass naturalisation of 4,000 foreign nationals from 110 different countries.

An odd omission occurs in the piece. Your editorial refers to the "diverse" reasons for coming here, eg, for employment, for love, etc. However, the European Union connection goes unmentioned. Ireland's EU membership offers an additional attraction. Why not say so?
