First Certificate of Irish Heritage issued

The first Certificate of Irish Heritage was today presented by Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore to the family of a New York fireman who lost his life in the 9/11 attacks.

I will post further details of the application process and its costs as soon as they are available, but I understand that the website for online applications for the Certificate – www.heritagecertificate.ie – will go live at the end of this month. It is not online yet.
