Information and tracing enquiries are normally dealt with by the organisation that arranged the original adoption placement. If the original placement agency has closed, the Child and Family Agency or the agency that now holds the placement records, will deal with the enquiry. If you know which agency was involved in the adoption, you can contact them directly.
Alternative Steps for Enquiry
If you do not wish to pursue your enquiry through the agency that organised the adoption, you can contact your local health office or the Adoption Authority of Ireland's Information and Tracing Unit.
