Just checked www.checktheregister.ie to make sure I'm registered to vote.

My name is there alright. However, beside 'Election Type', it says 'Presidential'. I can't find out what this means anywhere (ie: am I restricted only to voting in the presidential election). Nothing about my circumstances has changed since the last number of referenda or elections.

Can someone please check this and let me know what it says for 'Election Type' for you.

Think I only have til wednesday to get this sorted before the Repeal referendum if I've been downgraded.

Thank you.

I found this

Check your voting rights

Referenda: Only Irish citizens can vote in referenda e.g. to vote for or against a proposal to modify the Irish constitution (Bunreacht na hÉireann).

Presidential: Only Irish citizens can vote in Presidential Elections.

Elections for Dáil Éireann: Both Irish and British citizens can vote in elections for Dáil Éireann (the lower house of parliament).

Elections for the European Parliament: Irish, British and other European Union (EU) citizens can vote in elections for the European Parliament.

Elections for Local Government: Irish, British, EU and non-EU citizens can vote in local elections.
it doesn't really answer my question though.

I was wondering that myself, I checked a few weeks ago and saw I was listed the same way. Good to know. Now I just have to remember to check the Seanad register so I can vote out Ronan Mullen.
