The Law Reform Commission is asking for the Public’s input into Ireland’s succession law.  Section 117 of the Succession Act 1965 – asks whether a parent has made proper provisions for a child in a will.  At the moment, a child has no right to their parent’s estate –unless the parents die without making a will.  But other than that, there is NO automatic entitlement.
