The box contains a description of what you are or aren't allowed to do regarding reverse engineering or running unauthorised code, if you want to do those things but don't want to break the law by doing those things then you should return the console to the shop for a full refund.
If Irish law contains the clueless get out clause ( i.e. you can run away from any small print by putting your hands over your ears and shouting LA LA LA ) then you might be allowed.
As long as you don't break the DMCA/EUCD in the process, which you will.
