    I know that in England and Wales, the time limit in which to register a birth is 42 days - and this was also the case in 1894.

    However, does anyone know what the limit was back then for Ireland, please?

    (I have a grandfather who, we were led to believe, was born in Dublin on 6th February 1894. I have found a possible birth regsitration, but it was not until the April to June quarter.)

    Thank you,

    You may find the answer at irish-genealogy-toolkit.com/Irish-civil-registration.html Jan.

    A little way down the page it says
    Late, overseas and military registrations
    Each volume of the Irish civil registration indexes has a section at the back where late registrations were entered. These entries may have been registered only just outside the six-week registration limit or they may have been several years late.
