France has an interest in this because of the scale of their fashion industry. Ireland does not.
When it comes to the law, Ireland is effectively the land of non-enforcement. We don't really have a police force in the pro-active sense, we have a purely reactive set of security guards who spend the majority of time on the national roads checking tax discs or sat in offices falsifying things.
In this country you can openly run a puppy farm and sell on the internet, quite transparently, and never expect any consequences. You can buy or sell hard drugs in broad daylight in the centre of the Capital's mainstreet, nothing will hapen to you. You can even commit acts of violence and theft with little fear of consequences. You can park a car more/less anywhere you like if you turn on your hazards or if it's time for mass. you can drive in bus lanes whenever you like if you own an Audi or even if you don't but think you are a VIP, if you are wealthy enough you can defraud the state of millions, billions even. You can operate illegal brothels at your discretion. You can overstay your visa, no problem. The list goes on and on. The notion that there is spare capacity within law enforcement in this country to protect the revenue of coco chanel is laughable.
