Which passport do I use entering Ireland; US or Irish?
I'm a recently naturalized US Citizen, who was born and reared in Ireland. I plan to travel to Ireland and am unsure which passport to show when I enter Ireland; my brand spanking new US passport or my Irish passport?

I'm worried that if I enter Ireland on my Irish passport that when I return the to the US that the US authorities will question me as to why I don't have a stamp from the Irish authorities. Will the Irish authorities care if I show my US passport? And will either country's authorities try to confiscate the other country's passport?
I am aware that when I re-enter the US that I must show my US passport.
Anyone been in the same situation?
