How long has the fee for a cert been 20 euros?

last time we sent for one it was only 10 Euros.
we sent 20 for two certs, and they claimed they didnt get the application........
so that 20 went down the pan......into someones pocket, methinks

They introduced on-line ordering a couple of years back.

click on apply for cert on the left, and halfway down the page you will see Apply For Certs On-line

However, I must correct my earlier post as you can only order full certs for births and marriages 1922 onwards, 1924 onwards for deaths, on-line. I thought I had used it for certified copies for deaths around 1900-1910 too but I must have been mistaken.

Apparently the price for full certificates was hiked from €10 to €20 back in January although you can still get certified copies for €4, but only when you order by post
