Irish citizenship

Do you have an Irish parent or grandparent? Are you looking to obtain an Irish passport? I can help you obtain Irish citizenship by descent. I am an Irish citizenship genealogist with a proven track record for unearthing long-lost records for Irish citizenship applications. Consequently, I will happily trawl through the records on your behalf. In addition, I will also guide you along the way during the citizenship process.

If you are unsure about whether you may be entitled to Irish citizenship, I can help you find out one way or the other. To begin with, I encourage you to contact me with as much (or as little) information as you know. After this point, we will take it from there. In this respect, I always try and ensure that research is possible before you go ahead.

I can obtain all of the certificates you require for a passport or citizenship application. I can also complete the online applications on your behalf to save you the hassle.

Please read my Google reviews for a range of Irish citizenship and passport testimonials.

Leo and his Heirloom Family Tree service , done exactly as he said he would . He researched all my family history , some of it was not so easy , with deceased people and people moving around the world, etc. Like a true Professional , he dug in and put it all together, his excellent compilation made it easy to go to the next stage of gaining my Irish passport , it took about 15 months with a few hiccups along the way but i have just received my Foreign Birth Registered form ready for the next part to submit for my passport in the new year (Jan 2024). Relying on family to assist was a real pain , relying on Leo and Heirloom was a breeze , chatting as we went along , i would Highly recommend him and his company (I dont recommend to many people or companies like this!). Well done and many thanks again. Kind Regards Mark Harris

I was very impressed with the service Luke provided. He found all the relevant documents I required for my passport application and forwarded them to me very quickly. The whole process was speedy, straightforward and professional. Thank you so much.

IRISH CITIZENSHIP APPLICATION - Highly recommended. Luke is excellent. Extremely clear, professional and efficient and gets the job done as quickly as is possible. As a fully qualified genealogist, he found long lost birth and death certificates for me that I was completely unable to locate myself, because that is his area of expertise! He completed all the paperwork for my children’s Irish Citizenship applications and sent absolutely everything we needed neatly labelled and with full instructions. All we had to do was arrange signatures and an appropriate witness. Perfect! Thank you ????

I first met luke almost a year ago. And tracking down my father's birth certificate was nigh on impossible. Turned out his birth was never registered. The next step for liam was to find his baptism certificate, and, after a good bit of time it was tracked down and sent to me. I can't praise liam highly enough for the work he's done. It was a real test for liam but the cream always rises to the top. The only downside is that I could only give him 5 stars. If you want the job done please use him. Seamus McCabe

I wanted to thank you Luke for your encouragement to pursue my very complex Irish heritage search when I had almost given up, not realising how near the finishing line I actually was! If anyone is in two minds about using Luke just do it…you won’t regret it. His help, support & ongoing advice and signposting have been invaluable to me and I know he will always go the extra mile to help you too! A dedicated professional who won’t let you down and will take the stress away and steer you away from false trails.

What a great find Luke was.. I wanted to apply for my Irish citizenship and passport and without Luke I would have floundered.. I have already recommended him to friends so my review is simply 10 out of 10!

Luke provides an excellent service. His communications are very clear, and he provides lots of extra helpful information about the application procedures for Irish citizenship. He found everything that I needed, and more besides. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. I highly recommend him.

Sourcing certificates

If you know (or don’t know) the genealogy but are struggling to find a record, please get in touch and I will help you with your search. I have successfully assisted many individuals with their Irish passport and foreign birth registration applications. Additionally, I have a great track record in sourcing and procuring difficult-to-find records from across the globe.

If your parent was born on the island of Ireland

If your parent was born in Ireland or Northern Ireland, you are already considered an Irish citizen. Consequently, you may directly apply for the passport but you must send your parent’s original birth and marriage certificates as evidence. I can source the certificates and oversee the process on your behalf.

If your grandparent was born on the island of Ireland

If your grandparent was born in Ireland or Northern Ireland, you will be eligible to apply for Irish citizenship by descent. You will need to produce a range of original birth, marriage, divorce and death certificates for a number of generations.

I can source the records you need, take off some of the pressure, and oversee the entire process from beginning to end.

If your great grandparent was born on the island of Ireland

Unless your parent claimed their Irish citizenship before you were born, it is not possible for an individual to claim Irish citizenship by descent via an Irish-born great grandparent.

Please fill in the form below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
