Irish Free State Registered Trade Mark No. 1


Irish Free State Registered Trade Mark No. 1


The first registered trade mark in force in Ireland was the UK's Trade Mark No. 1 for Bass Ale. However, following independence in 1922 Ireland put in place its own intellectual property regime. The Industrial and Commercial Property (Protection) Act 1927 established a trade mark register for Ireland.  Deanta I nEireann is Irish for Made in Ireland.

A trade mark that merely designates the country of origin would not be registrable today.
