The Irish Government and the EU both have legislation on prohibited and restricted imports.  An overview and updated list of prohibited and restricted goods into Ireland can be found at:   Prohibitions and Restrictions.  In addition, you will find detailed information on what goods can be sent to EU Member States from Ireland and can be received into Ireland from EU Member States.
