Tony then attended the Liverpool College of Art, of John Lennon fame, and passed his Art exams.
After a few months working at Cadbury's Factory; He then worked in the Civil Service (Foreign and Commonwealth Office. He was seconded to the' Crown Agents 'in London, for some of years, before moving to Australia. He also had to sign the 'OFFICIAL SECRETS ACT'.
His father was from a Dublin Family, a schoolteacher,(Chief Inspector of Schools, and an ex officer in the Indian Army. NW Frontier).
His paternal grandmother's Jewish family fled Lithuania/Poland during the pogroms and settled in Dublin.His paternal great grandfather Joseph Kelley, also spent many years in His Chicago Ill. U.S.A. and was also a US Citizen,

--(On his mother's side, his direct family also pioneered Montana U.S.A., (emigrating from South Armagh). His great grandfather and his brother pioneered Montana Territory and sold horses to the US Cavalry in the late 19th century, near Sheridan, 1870s, 1880s onwards.

His Great Grandfather Michael McNally worked in the Anaconda Montana ,mine and died due to lung disease developed there--
-He was naturalised in Montana.....
He was a US Citizen. So both Great-Grandfathers were US Citizens making both Grandmothers the same....and so on.( A child of a US Citizen is also a citizen).
My exact position;
INA Section 322 provides for the expedited naturalization of the alien child of a citizen, if the alien child is “residing outside of the United States” and meets the relevant requirements of Section 322. One requirement is that the citizen parent must have “been physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years.” INA § 322(a)(2)(A), 8 U.S.C. § 1433(a)(2)(B). If the citizen parent cannot meet this requirement, the alien child may still qualify if the citizen parent’s own citizen parent can meet the physical presence requirement. Id. § 322(a)(2)(B), 8 U.S.C. § 1433(a)(2)(B).
