Ireland's historical registers of births, marriages and deaths are now online

The General Register Office of Ireland's historical civil registers of birth, marriage and death have been uploaded to the free state-run https://www.irishgenealogy.ie/en/

As anticipated, they follow the 100-75-50 years access rule and they are free. If the index entry gives you the option of an image, you download a pdf of the full register page in which that birth, marriage or death certificate appears.

Could someone clarify for me the following..?

When I see an entry such as the attached and the Group Registration is "N/R" there is no scanned image to refer to.. But it means the copy does exist, and just not scanned yet?  and I could get a copy of 4euro each? or it means that the image is lost altogether?

Thanks

Provided you have the page number, volume, quarter, name and district you can still order a 4 euro research copy of the cert.

Does anyone know if the 4 euro research copy can be emailed or is it posted?

The order form is very simple and clear and answers most questions.
https://www.irishgenealogy.ie/images/content/GRO_Documents/Form_for_DAHG_site.pdf

And the help section is good
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp

but I don't think any of them explain the Group Registration ID, as I understand it this ID number is assigned to each record as the GRO add it's image online and/or match married couples into one record, it replaces the Vol, Quarter and Page number, so a BMD will have one or the other but not both.
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.
