In cases where multiple eligible applications are received for a single domain name by the closing date of 22 March 2016 the domain names will go to auction. More details are available here.
One- and two-letter .ie domain names that are not registered during this phase will subsequently be available to the general public for registration on a first-come first-served basis, in accordance with the standard registration requirements.
