Irish equivalent of CG66?

Seeking information from the Irish contingent on here....

Is there an equivalent of the CG66 database kept by the Irish Coastguard and, if so, has anyone got a link to the forms?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not aware of one. If you let me know what you're trying to do I may be able to advise a course of action.

The ISA have a system called Safe TRX that MAY be useful?

The ICG are a little different to deal with than their UK counterparts, again this may work in your favour depending what you're up to...

Hi Wilk. This is what he's meaning https://mcanet.mcga.gov.uk/public/cg66/

Thanks Jambo - I was familiar with CG66 and we don't have an informal arrangement like that here. I also had missed that Barrowboy and his boat are now based in Galway so I'm no longer looking at the question in the same light (i.e. he's not visiting for a holiday etc.)

OP - the system here is straightforward. If your RIB was local previously then there is a good chance (but not a certainty) that she has a radio licence and associated callsign (begins IE####) and MMSI. That is generally the most "registering" small Irish craft get. It does however place her and her owner on a database that the CG use for safety purposes. Details of the system are here:
Maritime Radio Affairs Unit (MRAU) | DTTAS Department of Transport, Tourism And Sport
The lifetime licence cost is Euro100 but you can transfer ownership and update details if previously licenced/registered.

If you have taken a UK registered vessel to operate here for a short period then I would suggest using the local CG radio station to place daily TRs. Irish CG are generally happy to keep track of small craft as they are relatively quiet.
