Scenes from the history of the IEDR

The .ie Domain Registry (the IEDR) has been in the news lately following a compromise which left Google.ie and Yahoo.ie redirected to an Indonesian server controlled by hackers. This reminded me to scan and upload some documents from a 2003 Freedom of Information Act request to the Department of Communications about the IEDR - while of little contemporary relevance, they are very informative indeed for anyone with an interest in the history of the .ie space and hopefully will be a useful follow on to the massive set of documents Michele Neylon obtained under FOI relating to the formation of the IEDR.

ENN has some background about the precarious state of the IEDR in 2003.

Apologies for the poor formatting - the documents are as received from the department: FOI re IEDR, 2003
