en-IE means Hiberno-English. en-GB means British English. en-US means 
American English. Signed English isn't really related to the specific 
dialect of English.

What we have is ISL, BSL, ASL being used with more-or-less exact 
English syntax and structure. But it's still ISL, BSL, and ASL in 
terms of  the signs.
