Isn't Samsung Pay availability governed by your own Bank letting you use the service ?
That's how it is in the UK @TM01
Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²³ Ultra 512Gb in Phantom Black.
The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

No, in this case the banks have nothing to do with it. Samsung simply haven't made the service available to any bank in Ireland yet and I don't see it ever happening as they don't have a big enough of a consumer base in Ireland to make it worthwhile. Google Pay is the only option for Android users. For me, it makes their smartwatches practically worthless in Ireland as it's missing a major hardware and software feature.

It does smell like one bank signed up for an exclusive deal with Samung and then just tucked the project away in a forgotten archive to never be opened again. I'm not pointing any fingers, but there is one prominent bank in Ireland that doesn't do anything mobile pay related.
