The move rate is unique to Ireland, namely 90 15 as opposed to e2e4's (and everywhere else's) 90 30

1hr. 30 minutes per player for all moves + 15 seconds increment from move 1.
The benchmark for increment games is the time given for 60 moves. In this case it would be 105 minutes, so not on paper eligible for rating.
An interesting novelty in rule 25

S/He no longer needs to record the game, even if the clock subsequently goes back above this time, however, if s/he does not record the moves, s/he forfeits the right to claim a draw under the 50 move or the 3 fold repetition rules.
That's worth keeping in mind if you wanted increments in an evening league.
