At least three months notice of your intended marriage should be given to the priest of the parish where you now reside. He will fill in the necessary forms for you. If you were baptised in a different parish you will need to bring:
- A recent Baptism Certificate
- A Confirmation Certificate if details of Confirmation are not on Baptism Certificate
- Letters of freedom from any other parish you resided in since reaching the age of sixteen Or a Sworn Affidavit from a Commissioner for Oaths.
- Your Priest will fill in a Pre-Nuptial Enquiry Form
- He will advise you regarding any other Permission, Dispensations etc., if they are required e.g. if either party is not a Catholic.
The Bride's Parish Priest will send the Marriage Papers to [Fr. Liam Enright, P.P. Parochial House, Cratloe, Co. Clare] well in advance of the wedding Date.
