Quiz: Would this famous person qualify to play for a Republic of Ireland football team?

But while all of those below claim Irish ancestry, we’re wondering which ones would be able to play for a Republic of Ireland football team (by having an Irish parent, grandparent or some other qualification for an Irish passport, rather than actual ability).

Sounds simple? It’s not as easy as you think…
