  • A Notary Public is empowered to administer oaths, attest signatures, authenticate documents and to give Notarial Acts; 

  • A Power of Attorney (POA) is often used when buying or selling property or dealing with commercial transactions in a foreign country. The POA gives a person in that country, usually a lawyer authority to deal with a transaction on your behalf. This saves time having to travel abroad to attend to formalities. The POA is required to be signed in the presence of a Notary Public:

  • An Apostille is a certificate issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs verifying the genuineness of the signature and / or seal of the Notary Public on a public document. The Apostille Certificate may be stamped on or attached to the public document required to be Apostilled. It is obtained by presenting the document at the Department of Foreign Affairs at Knockmaun House, 42 – 47 Lower Mount Street, Dublin 2.
