Since you're collecting to Scott pages, use the Scott catalog. With Gibbons at least, you will be constantly translating numbers. You can buy original pages for Ireland only, cut out of the relevant Scott volume, from a seller on eBay. I think it's "chirokmd" or similar.

But another way to answer this is, from whom and where will you be buying stamps? If from US dealers, most use Scott and a handful use Gibbons. If you're buying in the UK within the country or from an eBay seller there, they'll use Gibbons. If you're going to STAMPA in Dublin or buying from MacDonnell in Ireland then use that catalog.

My advice as a long time collector of Ireland is, if you're in the US, start with Scott; if you're into specialty material like control markings or plate markings then get MDW; and you have extra budget throw in Gibbons.

I agree with CJ,
I think it is prudent to stay loyal to the main catalogue you feel comfortable with.
I would use no other catalogue than Scott, as a worldwide collector.

I set aside a digital folder in any particular country, that is assigned to "Catalogues"
Ergo : Ireland / Catalogues
I then place any subsidiary knowledge there.

So my collection is based on Scott hierarchy, but pages are inserted for varieties etc from other publications. Such as..............
