>Are there any Irish Search Engines specifically listing companies >who trade/sell to Ireland
Here's a few more business oriented sites... I am based in Dublin and do SEO work from here and would have to say I spend the majority of my time on the big engines and directories rather than the Irish ones. If a company is aiming its product/service at the Irish market, I concentrate on the major engines, as these send the most traffic. Other forms of online and offline marketing are used in addition to search engines when aiming at the rather small Irish market.
However, it can be worthwhile submitting for links and the odd referral here and there!
