1. I regret to say that having an Irish great grandparent does not entitle you to an Irish passport, unless all of the births of the grandparent, parent and your own birth were registered in the Irish Foreign Births Register at the time you were born. It is only by having an Irish grandparent born on the island of Ireland, that you would be entitled to Irish citizenship as of right.
2. Typing is just fine.
3. This is not correct. The Irish Department of Foreign Affairs don't have a discretion in the matter. You essentially need to show the registration of the births in the Irish Foreign Births Register to obtain citizenship based upon your great grandparent being born in ireland.
