Introduction of Life Event Certificates in Irish and Bi-lingual English and Irish

The Marriage, Civil Partnership and Civil Registration (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2022 came into operation on Friday 11 March and enables certificates for new registrations to be produced with headings in Irish or bi-lingual English and Irish.  When completing the registration form in the Newry, Mourne and Down District, you will be given the option to select your certificates in English, Irish or bi-lingual English and Irish. 

All certificates produced from the registration will be in the language format selected and cannot be changed.  The legislation applies to registrations going forward and will not apply retrospectively to life events.

Copies of Certificates

The local Registration Offices will only be able to provide certificates of births, still births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships at the time of registering the event.  To obtain copies of certificates, you can apply:
