An often-quoted myth about Irish civil records is that an unspecified number of Irish certificates “burned in the fire in Dublin”. I can reassure family historians that no single civil birth, marriage or death record was burned in the Four Courts fire of June 1922 for the simple reason that they were not in the Four Courts in 1922.

The General Register Office of Ireland is the government body responsible for civil registration in Ireland.
