Private answer

If he is tax resident in Malta (in terms of days etc) and not resident in Ireland (<183 days in current year, 280 days in current and previous years combined) then no.
Social Welfare Consolidation Act 2005 Sch 1 Part 3:
6. A person who is regarded as not resident or not ordinarily resident in the State in accordance with the Income Tax Acts and whose reckonable income for that year does not include income to which Chapter 3 of Part 4, or Part 43, of the Act of 1997 applies.
