The Certificate of Irish Heritage is now officially available online at www.heritagecertificate.ie.

Fexco, one of Ireland’s largest outsourcing providers, has unveiled its online heritage global business service for the Irish Government.  The company announced 60 new jobs arising from this and other business outsourcing contracts.

Earlier this month, the Tánaiste, Eamon Gilmore T.D., presented the first Certificate of Irish Heritage to the family of Joe Hunter, a New York fireman, who lost his life in the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre.

You know you’re Irish if...a new list is revealed

The certificate’s aim is to engage with Ireland’s 70 million Diaspora around the world. It acknowledges and marks the deep connection to Ireland felt by many people of Irish descent.

The Government awarded FEXCO the contract for one year on a pilot basis, which can be extended to five years. FEXCO executed the set-up project in 18 weeks and has invested significantly in the service.

The www.heritagecertificate.ie. website will join a network of state agency websites in the Government’s Diaspora outreach program.  A series of state agencies are expected to collaborate and link with the Certificate of Irish Heritage website including those in the tourism sector and those holding family history records.

Full details of the Certificate designs, the application and delivery process, the fee, and Frequently Asked Questions are available at www.heritagecertificate.ie.
