Certificate of Irish Heritage
The Certificate of Irish Heritage has been created by the Irish government to acknowledge the connection between Ireland and people of Irish descent in different parts of the world. It is hoped that through certification, many more people will have the opportunity to discover their history, heritage and learn about Ireland.
In order to apply for the Certificate of Irish Heritage, you must have at least one ancestor who was born in Ireland and should be able to demonstrate knowledge of your ancestor, for example a copy of their entry in a census, birth, marriage or death record.
Full details of the certificate, the application and fee, the delivery process, and Frequently Asked Questions are available on the Certificate of Irish Heritage website.
