IZ was a County Mayo series stating in 1904, no early dates known, but 105 could easily have been 1910. Cork assembly started 1921, Trafford Park in 1911, so a US build.

In 1917 Henry Ford established a factory on the site of the old Cork Park Racecourse near the Marina, opened 1919 as Ford's first dedicated vehicle plant outside America, building just Fordson tractors until 1921, when car assembly started. Cork made the world's last official T in 1927. Ironically in view of current EU/Brexit shenanigans, the removal of tariff barriers after Ireland entered the EEC caused major difficulties for the company as it struggled to compete with cheaper cars imported from Europe. Financial losses mounted and the Cork plant was finally closed on Friday 13 July 1984.

Not "made for IRL" as all of Ireland was still part of the United Kingdom in 1910. The Irish Free State (now the Republic of Ireland) was established in 1922.

As it's well known as an Irish car and may be the oldest surviving Irish-registered car I think it deserves to keep the made-for-IRL reference.
