    Folks I'm just wondering if there's a gambling regulator in Ireland that covers online sites.

    A Google search is only producing a commission in the UK. Thanks

    There's none in Ireland but IBAS cover all bookmakers including Irish ones afaik.
    Independent body who will investigate any queries/problems you might have
    with the gambling industry.

    Most online sites are governed by the regulator where there servers are located.

    Eg for Irish-facing sites that is typically Malta, Isle of Man, or a variety of other places.

    Online sites are located here. They are registered in the Channel Islands or Malta. The Government doesnt want to encourage online betting, but regulating and taxing it. Its prefers if it was done in the Channel Islands.
