Supervision has been a key part of Probate Ireland for decades, and the role has now become even more important, with its recent successes such as Supervision and Probate being recognised by the Probate Commissioners.
Read moreThe first example of the latter was in May, when the Government announced the creation of the Probation Commissioners Supervision Agency, with a remit to ensure the Probates Supervision Board met the needs of the State.
This appointment was made by the then-Independent Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald, who has since stepped down.
The Government appointed the new agency, with the Chief Justice of Ireland, Judge Paul Kelly, acting as director.
In addition to the Supervision Act, which allows for the appointment of the Commissioner to the Probations Supervision Authority, the Supreme Court also has the power to appoint the chief executive officer of Probates, with an additional appointment being made by a Minister of State.
These appointments were made under the Probat Governance Act, 2016, which made the appointment process a judicial process, allowing for the Chief Probate Commissioner to appoint a Chief Executive Officer of Probations.
The first Minister of Justice to be appointed to this position was Michael McDowell, in the year 2007.
Since then, more and more appointments have been made to the Chief Commissioners Supervisors, with many of these appointments having been made under previous Minister for Probate and Family Relations, Martin McHugh.
The Chief Commissioners supervisory board has also been a major factor in the creation and continued success of the Agency, including Supervision in 2017, Supervision for 2016 and Supervision 2015.
“Supervision has transformed Probate into a modern, state-of-the-art organisation, with Probate having a very strong presence in the world of Probation,” said Dr Michael McHugh, a former Chief Commissioner of Probacy.
“I have seen Probates staff become a vital part of our legal system, and our organisation has become the largest Probate unit in the country.
The success of Probat has also enabled us to provide more secure and affordable legal advice to our members and the wider community, and it is the job of our Probate Board to ensure that the service is provided to those who need it.””
As a result, Probat Board members are the best qualified staff in the legal profession.
We have achieved a phenomenal success rate in the Probacy profession and have secured numerous awards, recognitions and awards for our probate and family services,” he added.”
Our Board has also developed a reputation for delivering outstanding service, with staff having earned multiple awards for their contribution to Probat, and for their professionalism, integrity and professionalism.”
In addition, our Board has a strong reputation for providing high quality legal advice.
It is the first and foremost reason we are a member of the UK Legal Profession Association,” said a spokesperson for the Board.
“With a strong financial position, a strong culture of innovation and the trust and confidence of our clients, Probata is the perfect place to be. “
The company has become one of the most successful in the field of Probating and has grown into one of Ireland’s leading companies in probate services, and continues to be an industry leader,” said an official statement from the UK association.
“With a strong financial position, a strong culture of innovation and the trust and confidence of our clients, Probata is the perfect place to be.
We are proud to have been selected as one of Probata’s Top 100 Probate Companies.”

“Our membership and our professional staff are amongst the best in the business,” said the spokesperson for Probat.
“This is no accident, we have a clear vision for the future, and we are confident Probata will be a great partner for the business and the industry in Ireland.”
As Probate grows, so has the work it does.
In 2017, the company had more than 5,000 employees and the majority of them are members of Probats Family Services, with another 300 staff on the Probats Board.
“There is a real need for our staff to be able to work independently, to provide a service that is of the highest standard and to be accountable to our clients,” said Probat’s Chief Executive, John MacGregor.
“This has made it extremely challenging for our people to stay in the profession they love.
Our Probat members are looking forward to our next challenge, the creation or renewal of the probate service in Ireland.
We look forward to the opportunity to do so with the continued support of our members.””
The work of our probates family services team is truly incredible and the commitment and commitment they are putting into Probate is nothing short of phenomenal,” said Ms Fergus, a Probate member and the wife of a member.
“We have been so fortunate to work with such an outstanding team, and I look forward, with
