That can't be correct. I know Irish going all the way home to vote who have left Ireland much longer than a year ago.
It is absolutely correct. I have been an impersonation officially at two Irish elections and on both occasions we’ve had Garda come into the polling station to arrest people of doing exactly what you described.

There are plenty of Irish expats who’s family continue to put them on the live register, which is not illegal. But the minimum they stand in front of a presiding officer and request a voting paper they commit a criminal offense.
