Irish passports are very popular right now.

And more than 500,000 Irish passports were issued to applicants around the globe in the first half of this year.

A Reddit user recently pointed out the little known feature.

It seems both new and older passports have the patriotic stitching, which is located in the very middle of the passport (between pages Visa numbers 18 and 19).

Wishing you had an Irish passport? Anyone born on the island of Ireland, or whose parents and grandparents were born there, is automatically entitle to be an Irish citizen and qualifies for a passport.
