http://www.dfpni.gov.uk/stairs.pdf. Check out this web address. Its UK Regs but irish regs are much the same.
Tech doc C 12 does state the winders are best at the bottom of the stairs, be this reg says they should generally not be used... it doesnt say it cant be used.
Hope this helps.

Although the planning permission may state that the building is to be constructed in accordance with it, it probably also states that it is not evidence of, or an exuse to avoid, compliance with the building regulations. Note, TGDs are not the actual the Building Regulations. The Regs are much shorter, typically one-liners, stating principles like "the building must not fall down". How you achieve that can be up to yourself, - the TGDs are just one way of doing it.

A person shall not be entitled solely by reason of a permission under this section to carry out any development.
Thus, it is of no concern to the Planners if you can't carry out your developments for any reason outside the remit of planning legislation suh as building control issues.
