DNA Paternity Testing in Limerick


Limerick, or the City of Churches, is a fabulous place to visit and boasts many architectural and historical tourist attractions such as newly renovated St John’s Castle, Limerick City Museum and The Hunt Museum. The City is the setting for Frank McCourt’s bitingly funny but tragic memoir Angela’s Ashes and one can visit The Frank McCourt Museum which is filled with memorabilia from the life and (hard) times of the author. Limerick was awarded Ireland’s first City of Culture in 2012 and has a packed program of arts, cultural and sporting events. The city boasts a thriving café culture to go with its uncompromised and welcoming pubs.One mustn’t forget the origin of The Limerick itself; a type of humorous verse of five lines with an AABBA rhyme scheme;

“There was an Old Man with a beard, Who said, ‘It is just as I feared! Two Owls and a Hen, Four Larks and a Wren, Have all built their nests in my beard!”

– Edward Lear

The city is small enough to get round by foot or by bike and it only takes about 15 minutes to get from St Mary’s Cathedral to the train station.

International Biosciences accept orders for DNA paternity testing kits from Limerick, the surrounding areas and all of Ireland. We also have an authorised sample collection facility in Dublin for legal cases.

DNA 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 DNA 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. DNA paternity testing will help in these situations.
