how to do intra-EU transfer at Dublin airport; sufficient time?

In March we will be flying Seattle-Dublin on Aer Lingus (business class), arriving at 13:25,
with a connection to an Aer Lingus flight to Rome (economy class) which leaves at 15:15.
The flights are on the same itinerary.

__________________________________________________ ________

1 Upon arrival at Dublin airport, I assume we will go through Irish/EU immigration and customs; is this correct?

2 Then upon arrival in Rome we will not need to go through Italian/EU immigration and customs; is this correct?

3 Will there be any sort of business priority immigration/customs line at Dublin? If not, will we have sufficient time to get to our flight to Rome?

4 Will we stay airside in Dublin during this process? Or will we be processed to the non-secure side and then have to go through security or immigration again?

Thank you for any help you can offer us on this.

Ireland is not in Schengen so this will just be a normal international airside transit. Immigration and customs will be in Rome

Thanks, mate. We should have plenty of time to make the connection, it seems.

So, it will be just a matter of walking from our arrival gate to our departure gate (taking maybe 10-15 minutes?) without any security or immigration checks?

Thats plenty of time. The worst you are likely to experience is a quick flash of passport and thats it. Flights from EU/US/CA are deemed secure so should avoid the need for a security check if they arrive on a Terminal 2 stand. There is no priority at all as this process is typically minutes.

Customs and immigration will be in FCO in Rome.
