Notary Law Services

Paul Brennan BA, MBA, Solicitor

I am one of only a handful of notaries public working in North Dublin. I have a passion for Notary Law and am a member of the Faculty of Notaries Public in Ireland, commissioned for life. I was appointed as a notary for the counties of Dublin, Wicklow, Kildare and Meath and provides Notary Law services to clients in all of these geographical areas.

What is Notary Law?

A Notary public (or notary or public notary) is essentially a public officer constituted by law to be able to serve the public in non-contentious matters. These can range from matters associated with estates, deeds, powers -of-attorney and foreign/international business. Notary law has many functions such as administering oaths and affirmations, taking affidavits and statutory declarations, witnessing and authenticating the execution of certain classes of documents and to taking acknowledgements of deeds and other conveyances. Notary law also includes protesting notes and bills of exchange, providing notice of foreign drafts, preparing marine or ship’s protests in case of damage, providing exemplifications and notarial copies and performing certain other official acts depending on the jurisdiction of the notary.


A Notary Public is empowered to:

  • Administer Oaths and Attest Signatures
  • Authenticate Documents
  • Give Notarial Acts and Certificates
  • Take and draw up Affidavits (other than for the courts in Ireland)
  • Take Affirmations and Declarations
  • All the acts of notaries public have worldwide recognition.
  • For an additional fee we can arrange for your documents to be produced at the Consular Section of the Department of Foreign Affairs.
