you cannot receive the Irish channels with an english card (and vice-versa). You need an Irish card. I may have read somewhere that a Northern Ireland card shows both the english & irish channels, so in your case this would be the best choice. Alternatively, try to find an Irish FTV card ("yellow house") which will give you access to the Irisch channels. You must then put both cards in your receiver.

There is no FTV card for the Irish Chs, You have to take out a subscription before you will be able to view these chs.

and what about an old Irish subscription card, which isn't valid any more. Wouldn't this open the Irish FTV channels, as the english cards do ?

No there is no FTV card for the RTE output.

Either:

a. Physically swap you whole box with someone on a simillar subscription in Ireland. - Might be of interest to someone in Ireland who wants ITV/CH4/CH5 for Sport etc]

or

b. Set up an Irish Bank Account and use an Irish address to subscribe.

I don't suppose either of these options is 'legal', so of course wouldn't reccomend them.

Or pay by credit card, given the amount of people in Europe paying with non UK Visa cards I doubt they would check or care if it wasn't an Irish one.
