Most of the Aircraft you mention with Irish registry are planes once beonging to the Irish leasing-company Guiness-Peat (not sure if the spelling is correct).
The 3 747s that served most of their lifetime for Aer Lingus are "dead". As you wrote, EI-BED (originally a Lufthansa 747-130 aquired from Aer Lingus in the late 70s) is broken up, the other two in Kabo Air colours only served very short for that Nigerian airline and are stored (obviously wfu for ever). You´ll find pictures of the stored Kabo Air - 747s on airliners.net.
