Ha! Planners to the rescue!
Re Planning rules: I don't know for sure, but I'd have thought that there were similar provisions in the Arans as there are in, say, Co Clare (and all over the country since the intro of the 'sustainable' rural housing guidelines- don't get me started...).
Does the Dev Plan not say anything about the islands? (Galway CoCo, if I'm not mistaken.)
Re Purchase: This is a different matter as you indicate- common sense would tell me that it's a free market, unless specific language provisions apply, as with the Gaeltacht areas of Co Galway. They are belatedly trying to apply these rules after years of the 'cupla focal' brigade saying 'sea' and 'go raibh maith agat' to the CoCo. Again, the Dev Plan should have this in it, or the CoCo staff would know. Have you asked them?
