I don't believe they can occur at the beginning of a sentence. The most
common construct occurs after "na" (meaning "of"); "Ambasáid na hÉireann"
(Embassy of Ireland) is an example commonly encountered outside Ireland.
However, they can occur after other words.

No, not unless some new word processor has been launched in the past year
or so.
