Thanks JMCC - beautiful stats to behild.

Can you tell me - are these total domains in Ireland, are these new domains registered, are these .IE or all?
The survey covered ie/com/net/org/biz/info/eu. I haven't included the .us, the 15K detected .co.uk or the detected .es, .fr, .de domains. Generally the survey runs in the first part of the month but it takes a few days to crunch the data properly. The categorisation of redirects is a new feature that I had been working on for the last week. It took about 11K lines of SQL to make it work but it seems to be categorising them properly now. The 0.34% unclassified redirects are typically in-site redirects.

This are the breakdowns by TLD:
WhoisIreland.com .ie ccTLD Website Survey
WhoisIreland.com Irish Website Survey

I will have to double check the figures when I wake up as I am a bit zonked with an ear infection at the moment. When expressed as percentages of domains, the figures seem lower but the "no sites" percentage for the TLDs vary from 11.18% in the case of .ie to a high of 36.28% in the case of .biz.
