The countrys top university is offering students 30Euro-a-time to experiment on them.
And last night anti-drugs campaigners reacted with fury after it emerged trinity College Dublin is trying to recruit teenage guinea pigs who regularly use the drug.
Grainne Kenny from Europe Against Drugs said she was "gobsmacked" at the project.
She pointed out that those eligable to take part are dicing with death adding "This is not the type of research that should be used for human subjects".
Fliers have been distributed in the capital asking for "right-handed" volunteers for the two-hour test.
Researchers want to examine the effects the drug has on the mind.
It is understood that at least 60 long-term ecstasy have already answered the ad.
Staff at the psychology department have confirmed the existence of the research program., which is being funded by the Health Research Board within the college.
The post-graduate student leading the research has said the project was the best way to find out how ecstasy affects its users.
Gloria Roberts, who has a masters degree in neuropharmacology, said the student population is the ideal testing ground.
She said the only way to find out more about the drug was by testing long-term users.
But Grainne Kenny added "What are they at? I can't believe what is going on at Trinity College"
"What happens if some long-term user dies trying to get himself an extra 30Euro"
