Hi, thank you for your marriage. A divorce obtained in England, as well as a consent order ratified by an English court will be recognised in Ireland and you are entitled to submit a D180 form to the English family court to ensure its recognition in Ireland.

1. An English consent divorce decree will be recognised in Ireland. You dont need to go through the whole process again, nor do you need to take any further step to have the Irish marriage dissolved. This is because the Irish courts automatically recognise an English decree of divorce as dissolving the Irish marriage. Recognition of an English divorce decree occurs in Ireland without any further step being needed.
2. So you don't need to go through the whole process again, nor do you need to take any further step. Under Irish law, the English divorce is sufficient to dissolve the marriage and bring all things to an end. You don't need to file any forms with the court in Ireland. This is because the Irish courts automatically recognise the English divorce as dissolving the marriage.
