"We have never at any time needed either EU or GB plates - it is certainly not a "legal requirement" (though English number plates were once very handy at one time if you wanted to avoid being breathalysed")

The LEGAL requirement to display GB stickers has always been the case driving in Ireland

Just like the requirement to change a uk license to an Irish one within 100 days of taking up domicile it has not been enforced.

If you checked your facts there would be far less strife on this forum.
Your bombastic lies do nothing to carry a discussion forward.

RAC website
If you're driving in Ireland, your checklist requirements are:

    A valid UK driving licence.
    A GB sticker on the back of your car – unless your car has 'Euro-plates' (number-plates that show a circle of 12 stars on a blue background).
    Your motor insurance certificate.

The black country letters on a circular white back ground (a European custom) became an international requirement in many countries after the U.N.’s Geneva Convention on Road Traffic (1949) and Vienna Convention on Road Traffic (1968). It was agreed upon that a distinguishing sign of the country of registration had to be displayed on the rear of the vehicle. It also stipulated that the sign could either be placed separately from the registration plate or could be incorporated into the vehicle’s number plate and if the international registration letter was incorporated into the licence plate, it also had to appear on the front number plate.
