|Pre-1987 plate. ZT = Cork. The plate seems to be in non-standard colors. Trade plates used to be red, but had only three numerals. And it is not a newer reflective rear plate: The red is non-reflective, and the characters are not black.|

|Pre-1987 normal series reflective rear plate. IZ = Mayo.|
|1987 onwards normal series plate, 1991 onwards style. L = Limerick city.|

|Pre-1987 number on a 1991 onwards style plate. ZW means that the number was initially issued in Kildare, but the Gaelic name on the plate is that of Dublin.|

This plate does not have the Gaelic name.
