In order to licence a dog it must be micro-chipped.
Newry, Mourne and Down Council's online dog licencing service is provided in conjunction with the Council’s software provider Tascomi through a new service called Council Direct.
Before you can licence your dog you will need to create an account for Council Direct – follow instructions given on the link below. Login details will still work for residents who previously used Newry and Mourne District Council’s online dog licencing system. There will be other services for residents and businesses added to Council Direct in the near future.
Applicants will be required to provide evidence in relation to concessions e.g. birth certificate/pension book, proof of income support or housing benefit, or a letter from the vet stating your dog is neutered/sterilised. Your dog licence cannot be issued without providing this proof and failure to do so may result in your licence being void and you may be liable to a maximum £80.00 fixed penalty.
Please note: In order to licence a dog it must be micro-chipped.

Property certificates form part of the legal searches that solicitors have to undertake on behalf of their clients who are buying or selling property.
The standard property certificate covers a search period of ten years back from the date of the application, the relevant time period as recommended by the Law Society, but for a supplemental fee a longer search period can be carried out. The search is of the Council’s records in respect of the property so as to be aware of any know outstanding breaches of legislation for which the Council has responsibility. The postal number and street name where relevant is also confirmed.
All Property Certificates (for all areas within our Council District) are administered by the property certificate section of Newry Mourne and Down District Council and this section is based in O Hagan House, Newry. They distribute the application and map electronically around other departments to answer questions specific to them. Once all replies have been received the answers are merged into a single official property certificate and this and supporting paperwork are returned to the requesting solicitors.
Each application requires a completed application form, a map with the location of the property clearly outlined in red and the appropriate fee. Cheques to be made payable to Newry, Mourne and Down District Council. All applications to be addressed to
