Technically, anything is possible. Commercially, it's not so easy.
ADSL over ISDN is not currently available from eircom.
I don't know the exact reasons why ADSL/ISDN was not part of the
initial rollout, but I can think of a few possibilities: reduced
reach with ADSL/ISDN, having to dedicate ISDN-only line cards in each
exchange, different/incompatible customer premises equipment (you can't
use the same modem or router on ADSL/PSTN and ADSL/ISDN) and increased
complexity in provisioning systems and processes.
