1. Dear Trace, mutual recognition of penalty points exists between Ireland and the UK. However, in practice, this merely means that an entry is created in Ireland, where if you accumulate additional penalty points, you can get disqualified from driving in Ireland. The actual enforcement of penalty points from Ireland in the UK has not yet occurred. The Irish penalty points won't add cumulatively onto your UK licence as if they were UK penalty points. So, the actual effect is negligible.
