The underfunding of local probate registries around the country is causing significant delays.

That’s according to the chair of the Kerry Law Society John Galvin.

Mr Galvin was speaking ahead of a major annual legal conference which will be attended by over 100 solicitors in Tralee today.

Today’s conference will give local solicitors the opportunity to update their knowledge in key areas of Irish and EU law such as probate, GDPR and family law.

The Kerry chair believes the probate delays are as a result of staffing issues.
