The Notary of Ireland



The legal profession in Ireland is divided into barristers, solicitors, notaries and legal executives. Of all the various legal professionals, the notary public is the oldest. In non-contentious legal business, the notary has a comparable standing to that of a solicitor or barrister of Ireland and has a unique place in international business affairs.


The profession of notary traces its origins to scribes in ancient Egyptian civilisation and the tabelliones of Rome. The tabelliones, professionals who transacted legal business, became prominent in Rome between the second and third century AD. The influences of the East, the importance of commerce in the Roman Empire and the necessity to have written legal documents governing transactions all fostered the development of the profession of notary. A significant evolution of the notary was when notarii became secretaries to the authorities – principally the Emperor and leading ecclesiastics.
