    I was in the ILAC library today and I noticed a section on wills which included the following books:

    Make Your Will - The Irish Guide to Putting Your Affairs in Order
    Murphy & Dunne which is availabe as an eBook for €6.99

    ( There is also a book Inheritance and Succession by the same authors. Presumably it's a different book)

    Your role as executor - www.boitrust.ie (not working for me)


    Applying in person for probate - The Courts Service

    Making a Will - The Legal Aid Board

    Wills & Intestacy - The Legal Aid Board

    Intellectual Disability -www.namhi.ie - this website doesn't work for me.
