Ireland just going along with what Germany and France want is more of a surprise given how badly they've done out of this "deal". I'm sure they'll change tune, no doubt when it's far too late, once the EU really start going after Ireland over her tax laws.
So far, Eire has unconditional EU support WRT the Good Friday Agreement, that's worth much more than a few billions they might have been able to save by playing tough. Anything even remotely resembling the Troubles is likely to cost manyfold that as every 1% of GDP drop is a loss of $4bln per year, for each year after that drop happened.
