MacUser UK reports that O2 has been named Apple's iPhone network / distribution partner in Ireland.
The carrier, which is also Apple's UK iPhone partner, will begin selling the Apple's hot-selling handset on the Emerald Isle from March 14.
The handset will be on sale in O2 and Carphone Warehouse shops for €399 (8GB) or €499 (16GB) with contracts starting at €45.
This move has been expected as developers had spotted references to Ireland in the code of the just released iPhone 1.1.4 update.
Apple is also expected to announce that the iPhone will soon be available in Italy, Spain and Switzerland, with Canada also an outside possibility.
