Getting Grandmother's Birth Certificate
My grandmother, Catherine "Katie" Saunders was born on April 4 sometime in the mid- to late 1890's (She lied bout her birth year) on a farm outside of drumashanbo, County Lietrim. However, we have had a difficult time of this. My sister was told to send money to the church for a copy but was not sent one. My cousins have tried and not gotten an answer. Can you help?

Thank you.

Irish passport for descendants of Irish
I have heard that, if you can prove your Irish ancestry, you can get an Irish passport. My ancestry goes back to Brian Boru, but the closest is my 3rd great grandmother from Ulster. Going further back I have ancestors from Armagh, Dublin, Cavan, Tipperary, Donegal, and more.

Is the rumor true? Thank you.
