List of Irish supercentenarians

This list includes Irish supercentenarians (people from Ireland who have attained the age of at least 110 years) whose lifespans have been verified by an international body that specifically deals in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). There have been three verified supercentenarians from Ireland.[1] The oldest person ever from Ireland was Katherine Plunket at 111years, 327 days. The oldest immigrant ever to Ireland was United States-born is Kathleen Snavely, 113 years, 140 days (16 February 1902–6 July 2015). The GRG reports that there are no currently living supercentenarians from Ireland.

Irish supercentenarians

Below is a list of the oldest living people from Ireland. Those listed as 'verified' have been validated by an international body that specifically deals in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group. Those listed as 'pending' have provided at least one document supporting the claimed age but not the three necessary for validation. Those that are 'unverified' have provided no documents to support the age claimed.
