I sent mine and H2Bs off 3 weeks ago and no sign of it yet. Have to go to register the marriage in 2 1/2 weeks so beginning to wonder if I didn't leave enough time! Sent it to this address: Office of the Registrar General, Government Offices, Convent Road, Roscommon, Co. Roscommon Ireland.

hi - neither the pair of us could find our bith certs so we had to send away for them in order to have them with us when going to register marriage. I'm useless with paperwork!

Hey Princess lisa are you registering in Joyce house in Dublin? If so we just got H2B's birth cert before we went up to meet with registrar. Just go in a bit earlier. :wv

You just fill out a form and hand it in and then pay 10 euro. You can go on up to registrar in the lift then. At least you know you have that option now if your other ones don't arrive. ps make sure you know what hospital ye were born in. H2b didn't and had to ring his mam :o0 :o0
