If the Microlight is on a permit to fly, then you can do all the maintenece your self without any previous experience.

If it is on a C of A, then you will need a EASA B1.2 AML

Pilot,
It is 3hrs PUT for the night rating! 2hrs is PIC
And you CANNOT fly single IFR on EI-reg aircraft night in Ireland outside the zone boundrys.
Only aircraft allowed to do that are Other/ICAO reg aircraft,military and emergency use aircraft.
