You are wrong in the following claim:
'Second home' tax of 200 euro per year, whether
the property is in Ireland or abroad.
This would amount to double taxation. Ireland can not tax people for property abroad.

CHARGE ON NON-PRINCIPAL PRIVATE RESIDENCES
Unless Ireland does not have a double taxation agreement with the other country it couldn't impose the tax.
In any case how could one administrate such a tax?
