The Irish Times has a story this morning about the gaming laws in Ireland, which are very out of date. There are a number of casinos in Ireland, but apparently the big players are not involved because the situation is very unclear. (These are the brick and mortar versions.)

But there's some question about Ireland's position on Internet gambling as well ... it appears that it doesn't have one.

It's fairly evident that the current Irish legislation -- based both on the 1956 Act and the 1931 Betting Act, is painfully outdated to cope with either the current growth in physical casino operations, or the explosion in internet gambling.
