Pics of apt, rare, funny number plates taken in Ireland if possible

There are quite a few great plates running around these days.. anyone seen ones that are apt, memorable,funny or just plain silly?

Heres a pic of the most expensive N.I plate on a Dodge Ram LHD... its apt both for the size of the beast it is on and for the price paid (£104,000 sterling)
(the same guy from belleek in Co. Fermanagh paid £30,000 each for BIG2 and BIG3 on the same day)

Saw an Irish M3 with Irish numbers, but the plate was German. i.e. Had D instead of Irl above the EU stars. Bit strange I thought.

Seen a blue Mazda MX5 a few years ago. Can't remember the year but it was XX MH 5. The H was made look like an X. so it read XX MX 5

At the terenure classic car show I noticed a few irish cars with irish regs but german D plates ?
The cars were all Audis bmws etc so I presumed they are a german car club or something.

The 'IG' in AIG, BIG, etc was actually an unused 'Irish' combination up until about a year ago. i.e. Ireland - North or Republic - could have used it!

Co. Fermanagh 'took' it as their combinations were running out.

Here's another one of those "German plates"



I was wondering where in Germany Ä represented and then wondered about the strange number spacings, had a look at the tax disc and it was in fact an English number A398HKD, totally illegal spacing and letters! My guess is it is an attempt to beat Radar cameras.

Also saw 05MH54 on an Audi S4 close by, the 5 was "rounded off" a little to look like an S!

Remember years ago seeing the English plate A 1 on a Mark 1 Granada Estate being used as a service barge by Dunlop at the Phoenix Park Races. At one time when Dunlop was going through hard times they reckoned the plate was worth more than the company!

I saw a Nissan Sentra (remember those?) in Granard today with the reg. KIT xx (xx being numbers, obviously). Somewhat humorous.
