Civil registration of all births in Ireland was mandated by law in 1864. Consequently, civil Irish birth certificates for Irish ancestors born in 1864 or later can be found with a bit of patient, dedicated "detective" work. Prior to 1864, civil birth certificates are scarce and less likely to exist. However, births/baptisms were recorded by the parish churches throughout the country. Ballycastle will be glad to assist you in locating and retrieving your ancestors' certificates from Irish civil or parish records, whichever applies. Please download the ancestor's data form and the order form below, complete both forms with as much information as you can, and fax completed forms to 703-787-8732 or email completed forms as attachments to When we receive the forms, we will contact you to proceed with the document search and retrieval.

"I had almost given up hope of finding any record that my Irish Grandmother even existed without having to spend a small fortune.
Mike and his contacts at Ballycastle were so amazing and we kept in constant contact while the search was on.......Mike even called me at home from America!!!! The dedication that I was shown made me feel like it was just as important to Mike that my Grandmothers records where found as it was to me and my family and I will never be able to thank him enough. Mike will be welcomed into my home as a part of the family anytime he comes to Oz."
- Lizzy L., Brisbane, Australia

"I had been searching for my grandmother's birth certificate for a long time. I knew she was from County Mayo, but I did not have the name of the town she was born in, nor her exact birth date. I did have the names of my grandmother's parents, and in a very short time, Ballycastle Enterprises found her birth certificate. I am truly grateful for the great work of this company, and I highly recommend them to anyone who is searching for their family roots." -Ann W., Fairfax, VA

"My father was born in Ireland and came to America as an infant. He died in 1966. I recently obtained my father's Irish birth certificate from Ballycastle Enterprises. This has meant a lot to me, because it connects me to my Irish roots and heritage in a very real way. Thank you, Ballycastle Enterprises, for completing some of the pieces of my Irish family history puzzle!" - Tom H., Baltimore, MD
