I presume they call it that because that's what it is. :-) The Irish 
statutes in question call it "Greenwich mean time", without capitalizing 
the "mean" or "time". While we're on the subject of names, Ireland's 
Standard Time Act, 1968 gives no name to what we're calling "Irish 
Standard Time"; it merely uses the phrase "the time for general purposes 
in the State (to be known as standard time)".
