It is permitted to fly but must register and receive a “tail number” on the website of the Irish authorities

As of December 21, 2016, a new regulation has been introduced in Ireland which requires the registration of a small skimmer over 1 kg and under 25 kg (mirror weight, battery, camera and all equipment on the skimmer when in air).
Riders over 25 kg are required to register as a large unmanned aerial vehicle.
