Can someone remind me what it's called and which family run it? My SR2 books are in the loft somewhere and the Almanac doesn't mention it  ???

Thanks!

If you mean Telestrain Industries, that'd be Tie Taingire, not Tir na nOg.

I don't know of any major former-Ireland corps off the top of my head.

If you need one, just create it.  A Shadowrun version of Ryanair maybe :)

There are litterally thousands of "A" level corps out there (national level) so feel free to invent one.

There are less "AA" corps (multinational), but there is probably 1 or 2 from that area.
Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

What do you want the Irish Corp to do?

You could probably grab something from the current list of companies in Ireland and just scale them up to represent their corp descendant.

Fyffes for example is a major importer of Tropical Fruit based in Dublin with operations in The US, Europe, Central and South America..

Hauling fruit gives them a perfectly valid foot in the door to several countries, giving them connections that with the Awakening means they have a whole bonanza of new fruits and plants to choose from.

Probably doesn't put them high on the Azzies Christmas wish list since they are probably supporting countries that the Azzies would prefer to have cut off but that's a lot of coastline to try and blockade even if they wanted to.

Doesn't sound very exciting?

Well that's true to a point, but again they might be on the cutting edge for obtaining some awakened plants and this is assuming they are not doing a little extra importing of other goods under the cover of being a fruit hauler. ;)

Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?

I'm running London Falling and was looking for a variation on the TRC as I've shifted the emphasis of the extractee.  Not to worry, can stick to the TRC...  :D

Actually, the most visible A-rated TNO corporation is AET, which stands for Armaments Eireann-Tir.  AET, like essentially every other weapon maker in shadowrun, makes nearly every type of weapon which can be found in the book; AET models tend to be a touch heavier and a touch bulkier.  In the TNO book, the Wonder Twins Carl Sargent and Mark Gascoigne also introduce the counter to the 'ultra-armor' they devised for us and put into the hands of the elven Welsh Duchess Rhiannon Glendower in the London Sourcebook, to wit 'morph-seeking weapons', which are basically a GM's 'blue bolts from the sky', weapons which pretty basically guarantee a kill-shot each time, every time.

Lesson you should take away from the London and Tir na nOg sourcebooks?  Sargent + Gascoigne = Suck.

The US went to war (more or less) to help the U.S. Fruit Co. (among others). The US Marines hit almost every country in Central America and most of the Caribbean in the early 1900's to maintain/put in power stable and cooperative regimes so U.S. Fruit could import bananas at low prices, giving us the term, "banana republic". Whose to say that an Irish version isn't any less aggressive (and brutal). Also, it would be a great front for their intelligence services, like James Bonds Universal Exports.
