We brought our car over in December 2020; it's a BMW 1 Series diesel and Ireland is our main residence now; are we exempt from charges?

If you moved to Ireland from the UK (or any other country for that matter) and brought your car with you, then you are indeed exempt from paying VRT and import duties, as long as you can show proof of your change of address, and proof of at least six months' prior tax and insurance on the car at your previous address.
