Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ireland had a similar opportunity last June, but were stymied by N. Ireland refusing to coordinate policies. Islands have a massive advantage provided they institute robust border controls and enforce quarantines on travellers.  NZ did. We didn't because it was politically unacceptable (and probably impossible) to close the border with N. I. Even so we were down to a handful of cases last June.
