  Good response here Eric.  Also good insight IMHO it would seem that
BoD and Sr. staff have yet again under the radar of public knowledge
the DOC/NTIA's insistence of more a better openness, has been very busy
yet again trying to get ccTLD's out of the hands of governments fearing
national regulation.  This article shows clearly that, so called
entities wish to use government's names and authority to set policy for
.IE in this instance much like the ICANN BoD and staff attempted to
do with ..PH and other ccTLD's...  I hope that he citizens of Ireland
will see clearly and through this almost cleaver attempt at taking he
citizens and sakeholders of .IE now and in the future of what
COMREG,  http://www.comreg.ie  is attempting to do...

  I know I will along with our many and growing Irish members of
IENGroup be sure that as many of the Irish stakeholders and
future stakeholders are as fully aware of the consequences
of such a decision...
