In Ireland, the national law, which, amongst other things, gives further effect to the GDPR, is the Data Protection Act 2018. (reference

The GDPR will apply by default to the majority of personal data processing, but in Ireland further rules on certain issues (for example the reasons for, and extent to which, data subject rights may be restricted) are set out in the Data Protection Act 2018..
