    you have to pay duty aswell as VRT(Vehicle registration tax) if the car is less than 6months old. if its more than 6months you just pay the VRT. it would have to be registered for the 6months tho. the only way of getting away without vrt is if you own the car for 1year outside ireland you can bring it over here and just change plates I think im sure theres some small fee (known Ireland that small fee is a couple of hundred). would you not just bring over your english reg car and leave it on english plates if the gaurds stop you, you'll still have your uk licence. you'll have cheaper tax as well.
