That is an excellent set of close-ups. I reckon that Frank Cawley's moth is a butterfly - a Small Tortoiseshell. I think that butterflies generally have that little club on the end of their antennae. They're supposed to rest with their wings held together too but they tend to flap them around quite a bit - the photo has the wings apart like a moth.

A link below to an excellent site with a photo of all the Irish species of butterfly.
