Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And how would the Republic of Ireland organize an election within N. Ireland? They could give a disproportionate representation in the EP to Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan, the three Ulster counties not in N. Ireland and allow N. Ireland based Irish citizens to register and vote there, but how many would travel to vote there? Even this would run counter to legislation providing for proportionality between representation and resident population. However a nice try by Sinn Fein, to leverage their dominance of N. Ireland nationalist politics, and effectively disenfranchise N. Ireland unionists. Of course the DUP did that all by itself in pursuing a policy of Brexit in the first place..
