About the collection:
Dog licences were introduced into Irish law in 1865 and the first licences were issued the following year. The licences were issued in the same courts as held the Petty Sessions. There are 7,310,994 records available with more to be added next year. The dog licences were introduced to make it easier to identify the owners of trouble making dogs.
What information can you expect to find:
- Year and date of licence
With these records, it’s essential to look at the images so that you don’t miss finding out about your ancestor’s dog. The image will tell you:
- Colour of dog
- Sex of dog
- Breed or type of dog
The images were provided by Family Search from records held at the National Archives of Ireland.
