Endon services in the UK may well order parts and send them to Ireland. (Trade as renaultgenuinespares.com) mike Aldridge there is very helpful.
Their webpage allows you to check part number availability ( but is a bit optimistic) Mike usually responds the same day to an email query without you having to place an on line order first.

Just an update. Picked up the GTA from Lee beginning of September. Flew into Stansted and rented a car on a one way with my partner Susan to drop it off at East Midlands airport. Lee had the car ready with the exhaust provided by Stephen fitted. After a chat with Lee, off we went with the GTAs first big drive in 10 years!
Headed back down to the airport in convoy to drop off the rental and hit traffic! The temp gauge started climbing! Fan not working, although did before... Renault electrics! Dropped off the rental and headed to Liverpool via Big MVS house to get a part and temp rose in traffic so I pulled off and let it cool. Used google to find a quieter route and set off again. Using back roads had no issues and car drove lovely. Got the part from MVS and then to Liverpool. Car went really well. Did a night and a day in Liverpool and took the night ferry to Dublin. Car again drove well to Cork. Now getting it cleared with customs and it has gone to get painted.
Still need parts from Stephen and also been in touch with Simon. Lots of electric issues to sort! Hope to have it looking better and more sorted by spring. But a decent car to start with.
Thanks to Lee and Martin. Also Stephen for the exhaust but Stephen I need the other parts please!!
Cheers Eddie

Nice update. Hopefully just a sensor on the rad fans, also as discussed have a play with the rear engine bay fans. Short the wires together going to the sensor in front of the Turbo. One should put a light on the dash the other should put both fans on... Otherwise:
