Looks like the government gave Rockall to Scotland in a secret deal in 2013

A deal signed by Eamon Gilmore when he was tánaiste in 2013 formally recognised the Rockall area as part of an exclusive UK economic zone. Simon Coveney was Minister for Fisheries at that time. The Scottish cabinet says they will be excluding Irish fishing vessels from Rockall waters. However it is about much more than fish. It would also give Scotland ownership over the large oil resources around Rockall that haven’t been exploited yet.
