The fact that the Turkish Government's Ministry of Foreign Affairs says that Ireland is exempt should surely be sufficient.
The MFA website states clearly...

27 Febuary 2020, Statement of the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, in Response to a Question Regarding the Decision to Grant Visa Exemption to Some European Countries
In order to sustain unity in our visa regime towards the members of the European Union and Schengen area, Turkey has decided to exempt visa requirements for the citizens of Croatia, Ireland, Malta, Portugal and Norway for their touristic travels to Turkey for every 90 days within 180 day period.

This step aims at increasing our tourism potential with these countries as well as further developing our bilateral relations in other areas.

Re: Visa-free travel from UK to Turkey

As I said I was referring to the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and to be honest I do not know what was said yesterday by the Turks.
I will however check tomorrow.

Turkey to allow visa-free travel for 6 European countries

Citizens of six more European countries will be able to travel to Turkey without a visa starting next month, a Foreign Ministry official said.

Turkey will lift visa restrictions for tourists from Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and the U.K. starting March 2, spokesman Hami Aksoy said Thursday.

The new visa-free regime will allow entry for up to 90 days per 180-day period.

Noting that the decision aims to boost tourism ties with the six countries, Aksoy said it will also help further develop commercial, economic and cultural relations with these nations.

Turkey is already a popular destination for British tourists, with more than 2.5 million arrivals last year.

Some 51.9 million people visited Turkey in 2019, including 44.7 million foreigners and 7.2 million Turkish expats.

Having hosted the highest annual number of tourists ever last year, Turkey was the sixth most-visited country in the world, according to the U.N. World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

Re: Visa-free travel from UK to Turkey

For anyone still doubting that Irish passport holders no longer need a tourist visa to enter Turkey despite numerous official links, here is the result if they try to apply for one on the official evisa site.
When entering the info that you have an Irish Passport, you can no longer proceed with the application as it states YOU ARE EXEMPT FROM VISA.

Re: Visa-free travel from UK to Turkey

Well it seems that Irish Citizens are exempt as of the 2nd March and not as indicated by some.
Here is the response from the Irish Embassy I received today..

'Yes that is correct, from 2 March there is no visa requirement for Irish citizens coming to Turkey for touristic purposes (up to 90 days in any 180-day period). Irish citizens travelling to Turkey for other purposes should contact their nearest Turkish Embassy in advance of their visit to clarify their visa requirements.'
