Technically as no formal single uk constitution exists, the role of prime minister is enshrined in the various acts and laws etc that act to form a constitution - do Irish tv follow the taosich to the president like the uk channels follows the pm to the queen after the election is resulted

I've never seen that. I think the nearest equivalent would be when the Taoiseach and cabinet ministers receive seals of office from the president, which is broadcast live.

RTE has shown live coverage of a Taoiseach going to "the Aras" to resign, I have seen it, usually hosted by Bryan Dobson.
