Subject: U+204A- Tironian ET?

I am a member of an Irish committee on computing standards, and we have been
informed by one of our members that there is a character called "Tironian
ET" at position U+204A.
Our member states that this character is used by "rare-book librarians" and
he wishes to use it for Irish, for what I would regard as a Gaelic glyph of
the ampersand character.
I do not see any such character in the on-line version of Unicode, and I see
only that U+204A is marked "reserved" in some lists and is absent in others.
Can you tell me what the status of this character is in Unicode please?
                                Thank you,
                                Ciarán Ó Duibhín
