DNA Testing, Paternity Testing and DNA Tests in Ireland


International Biosciences have provided DNA Testing, Paternity Testing and DNA Tests in Ireland on numerous occasions and the number of cases is growing steadily. This is due to two main reasons. Firstly, the prohibitive cost of paternity testing in Ireland prevents men in many cases from proving that they are the father of their children and secondly a general lack of knowledge regarding DNA tests.

Taking thousands of years to develop and famed all over the world for its rich, literary traditions and vibrant culture, Ireland has an incredible history with culture and heritage at every turn, shaped by heroic events through the centuries.

Irish history is full of myths and legends. From tales of warriors to ancient saints to fairy lore, Celtic myths are at the heart of this beautiful country. The pub lies at the very core of cultural, social and musical life in Ireland. Not only can you be served a drink but in an Irish pub you are able to philosophise the meaning of life, reflect deeply on global politics, listen to poetry, tap your feet to a traditional music session, feast on food or just enjoy settling in front of a crackling fire.

Each of Ireland’s major cities is perfectly formed, not overwhelming but not too small so that you see all of it in a day. With two capital cities, Ireland bursts with energy thanks to its excellent restaurants, boutiques, legendary pubs, galleries, parks, architecture and its turbulent but fascinating history.

DNA Testing in Ireland

Paternity testing in Ireland costs on average over £600 at the main Irish centre where it is performed. “I am amazed at the lack of information about paternity testing in Ireland”, says Alan Beirne, who is a spokesman for Parental Equality, the organisation that lobbies for equal parenting rights for fathers, estranged mothers and grandparents.

Paternity Testing in Ireland

In Ireland, the Status of Children Act maintains that children are the offspring of their mother’s husband unless it is proved otherwise. But for unmarried parents, there is a need for paternity testing. If an unmarried mother names a man as the father of her child on the birth certificate, she can then attempt to obtain maintenance from him in the family law courts. Equally, a man who suspects that he is the father of a particular child may find that the mother is unwilling to have him involved. Carrying out paternity testing will help in these situations.
