Thank-you David. I should have remembered those ones.

Some discussion of that was here.

Are there any other titles (including WGM and WIM) that were gained in the last few years, or players with those titles switching to register under 'British Isles' FIDE codes?
GM Jacob Aagaard, as announced on the Quality Chess blog, has recently changed registration from DEN to SCO.

Some questions:

...
Did no-one from ENG, WLS, SCO, IRL gain any titles in 2015 or 2016? (Titles, not norms)
Nobody from Ireland was awarded any title higher than FM in 2015 or 2016 or so far in 2017.

Currently we have seven IMs (one long inactive - Kelly) and one GM (Baburin) who was possibly only an IM when he transferred to Ireland if I recall; that was many years ago.

We have one player (Stephen Jessel) who achieved his third IM norm last year but has yet to reach a 2400 rating; he's currently 2370.

The highest title held by Irish-registered women is WFM; some of these possibly held the title before transferring to IRL.

(I'll try and search the lists at some point, but if anyone else wants to instead...)
IM title: 2015-02-27 418811 Merry, Alan B ENG 2349 1996 INF

I'm not sure when David Eggleston received his IM title. He had the norms back in 2012 but it was some time after that when he hit 2400.

David Eggleston is on the first page of this thread, having been awarded the title in 2013.

Though having said that, his FIDE rating page gives " 83rd FIDE Congress, Istanbul, TUR, 27 Aug - 10 Sept 2012" as the date of the awarding. Was that a conditional one (the link provided gives his highest rating at the time as being 2382)? I must have had a reason to give 2013 as the year...

In October 2013, there was this:
