Check out FlightHealth.org. Most airlines allow you to fly up to 35 weeks, but some place restrictions from as early as 28 weeks for long-haul flights. If you get a letter from your GP or consultant confirming that it's safe for you to fly, however, you should be grand. http://www.flighthealth.org/pregnancy.htm

If you are going outside Ireland be careful re travel medical insurance - I wanted to fly to US for a wedding when I would have been 34 weeks, airline was fine with it but couldn't get travel insurance that would cover me past 32 weeks. :o(
