To officially use the Irish spelling of your family name in Ireland, what do you have to do? Which official gives info about this?
The irish spelling is not in use "in living memory".
Has anyone done it?

Just start using it!
But be prepared to be asked "what's that in English?".

And you'll save yourself a help of a lot of trouble and frustration if you change ALL your documentation into that name, if you're really serious about it.That means, bank accounts, ID, driver's licence, the lot. Half and half is just gonna be a pain in the neck, especially if outside Ireland. Certain administrations just won't accept that you might have two different names!
