The first payout from the newly created Irish PLR system to cover the year 2009 will be made later this year.
If you claim UK PLR, then you should be eligible to claim for PLR from the Irish system for all books featuring your work that are loaned out by the Irish Library service.
However, to get your claim included in the payout for 2009 you need to submit your claim by Friday 9th October 2009.
Claims submitted after this date will be included in the payout for 2010 and subsequent years.
See the Irish PLR site for more details: www.plr.ie
