@njha "(Future) domain holders must show that they have a real, and verifiable connection
to the island of Ireland. Depending on the type of applicant, there are a variety of ways
of showing this connection.
For example, individuals could provide proof of Irish Citizenship or residency within
the 32 counties of the island of Ireland. [...] Where a (future) domain holder is unable to show this connection, they are refused
the right to use a .ie domain." https://www.iedr.ie/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/IEDR-RegistrationNaming-.IE-Namespace.pdf
@Matter Thanks. I did read that but sometimes there are services that get around that for a fee (by having an Irish person/company register it for you). Was thinking along those lines, but maybe not.
