Will do! I think my situation is going to work out. I don't need (or want) residency and as long as I can visit my cottage every year, I'll be fine.

If you are allowed to buy a cottage there, I can't imagine that they can keep you from living on it whenever you want to After all, it's your piece of land.

I am a US and Canadian citizen. As such, visiting Ireland is a privilege, not a right. They don't have to let me enter.

That is not the point I was trying to make.
If they don't want you to live there whenever you please, they should not allow you to buy a cottage there in the first place. After all, can you call something your possession when you cannot access it whenever you want to?

I don't make the laws. I just try to understand them and follow them the best I can.....

You can own property in many countries without being entitled to residency.

Sure, but it is odd when you think about it... It's like buying a car and not being allowed to drive it sometimes
If I were the king of a country I would not allow any foreigners to own land there

If all you had to do to get residency in a country was to buy property, some countries would be overrun with immigrants. And many countries don't want more people!

Well, that's the world we live in and there you have it.

The only place I feel free anymore is on the open ocean or the altiplano in the Andes.....

Curious where you would buy a cottage?
