Do you have any Rhus in Ireland like the poison-oak or poison-ivy we have in the USA?

No thank heaven, we have stinging nettles and that's about as bad as it gets. I never heard of poison oak.

I agree with crosseyedsheep, the only type of Rhus that should be found in an Irish garden is Rhus typhina, the stags horn sumach.
And thats an import.
