New online Ordering System for Irish BMD Certificates

You can now purchase certificates of Irish birth, adoption, stillbirth, marriage and death certificates online at
http://www.hse.ie/eng/services/find_a_service/bdm/certificates_ie

However, it seems to me that this system is not all that useful for genealogical purposes as the information required is detailed and the system does not use the volume and page number which the Familysearch.org website provides in its index. Also, photocopies are not supplied and therefore a birth certificate for example costs €8 with a €2 search fee and a €1 postage fee. The GRO charges €4 for a photocopy of a certificate when the volume and page number is provided.

Records available for purchase on the HSE website:

Births:
Births registered in the Republic of Ireland from 1922 – present.
