Hi, I am happy to help you with your enquiry today.
Unfortunately, there is no specific legislation governing the collection of vintage swords. However, it is still covered by the The Firearms and Offensive Weapons Act, which notably prohibits the, importation, sale, hire or loan of "offensive weapons" which include flick-knives, knuckledusters, swordsticks, sword umbrellas, hand and foot claws, belt buckle knives, pushdaggers, hollow kubotans, shurikens, etc.You may visit this website for an official list of "offensive weapons": https://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/1991/si/66/made/en/printI also advise you to read this section: https://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/1990/act/12/section/12/enacted/en/html#sec12which deals with the prohibition on its importation, manufacture, and sale.
Is there anything else I can help you with today?
