Birth registration/certificate

    Hi all,

    Didn't now where to begin in terms of correct forum so please move if incorrect. Galway chosen as that's where we live :)

    We have a newborn which we are bringing to the city on Monday morning to register him. Late last year there were many media reports of very long delays, up to 3 months or more.

    We need to travel in the short term and obviously the baby cannot get a passport until he has a birth cert.

    Has anyone here any recent experience of how long the process is taking?
