There is no defense, but extended insult blended with rhetoric.
What would be extremely fitting in these times we're in, is for someone here who happens to be on the dole, to compile an online list of Irish Government (taxpayers money) sites which are abroad.
I often tell people to host in Ireland, as much for security reasons than the other factors -
1)At least you can drive to the server
2)The Guards can drive to it. You can plug it out, in some way.
3)You can knock on someone's door
4)The jurisdiction is more easily understood - well accessed.
5)That little understood word - accountability, might sum it up!
What if Fine Gael or anyone was contacted by the newspaper, telling them of the interesting Porn display on their site or the one that it may redirect to? Its more serious that people think and they are just lucky to get away with it.
Direct control, if possible, is the responsible way forward.
