Americans refer to it as 'ambulance chasing'. You have seen it on TV. A dodgy lawyer hangs around what they call the 'emergency room', hoping to sign up someone who has just had an accident to get them to make a personal-injury claim.
That would not be permitted in this country.
So the Irish version is what is known as 'claims harvesting' through advertising online or in local papers.
