The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ireland requests all whom it may concern to allow the bearer , a citizen of Ireland to pass freely and without hindrance and to afford the bearer all necessary assistance and protection.
That is the request on your passport
To all whom it may concern. They don't state who all is but they also don't state who they aren't.
So if one gets stopped by the police can one tell them you have a request from the minister of Foreign Affairs for them.
