Who owns the country.com domain names?

Who owns the country.com domain names?

As most people shall have read yesterday the domain name Ireland.com was sold for €490,000 that is about $635,000 USD the story was covered by many bloggers and I read it first on ElliotsBlog.com, The domain name was acquired by Tourism Ireland who have been using DiscoverIreland.com as their main domain name for many years.
