Irish Passports - Changing to married name?

I'm getting married in April 2011 and my passport runs out in June 2011. Many Honeymoon destinations require 6 months on your passport so I figured I better get it changed before I wed. To save on doing it twice I wanted to change it to my married name.

I've read about UK bride's providing a copy of their marriage notcie in order to change their name before they wed. Does anyone know anything about this for Irish passports?

We'll also be having a Muslim wedding blessing in Jan, which means we'll be married then under Islamic law - but not legally. I can provide a certificate for this too?

Any advise however brief much appreciated.

    Sorry, I'm not sure how it works for Irish passports.

    I really wanted to travel on my honeymoon under my married name but I've booked a girly weekend to Spain 6 weeks before the wedding so I'll need my maiden name pasport for that.

    Hope you get it sorted
