None of the iPad's on Amazon are sold by Apple. They're all 3rd party sellers. I'm not sure where Ireland got the idea that Apple's selling it there or that they'd have a different price for their products sold on Amazon as opposed to their own site.
With the shipping times for iPads on Apple's site being pretty much immediate I guess the gougers on Amazon are just taking advantage of people in Ireland's situation (buying from one country for someone in another or some other less than straightforward transaction).
