In my experience UK is WAY more expensive.

Churchill - car value £25k stg (40keuro), 10years+ no claims, full lic, age 44, living in rural town in cambs (an old address of mine) fully comp £605

This year via broker, I am paying just over €450 for identical insurance over here living in rural town about 60km from dublin.

That's a big difference.

If you are living in the UK and can proove this from a VRT point of view yes, however most insurance companies limit overseas cover to 30 days which would mean you would have to return it to the UK every 30 days.
