The article says 2nd oldest but Kitty Jeffery was still alive in March at 108y 4m and there doesn't seem to be any public info suggesting a change in her status.

Has Martin McEvilly been confirmed by government statistics as the oldest living man in Ireland?

Has Martin McEvilly been confirmed by government statistics as the oldest living man in Ireland? 

That is the claim in this article, although it doesn't actually state how they acquired the confirmation. I didn't receive a reply to two queries I sent to the Presidential office, but it does seem quite probable that Mr McEvilly is the oldest -

Well well.. it turns out that Ireland's 'oldest ever man' was a fraud.

https://www.sundayworld.com/crime/irish-crime/face-of-woman-accused-of-270k-pension-fraud-after-search-for-irelands-oldest-man/a150961918.html

Not sure if the researcher is me, but the article says he knew the man was from Laois, which I didn't.

This reminds me of Sogen Kato's family claiming his pension when he'd been dead for 30 years...

Michael O'Connor takes his rightful place as the oldest man ever to die in Ireland.
