This is total mullarkey. Eircom doesn't supply ADSL over ISDN for the
same reason they do so many other things arseways, so to get ADSL on an
ISDN line you first must convert the ISDN line to a POTS line, and then
get ADSL installed on that.
It's entirely possible that this may be a smoother process with Eircom,
as I think you can place an order to "convert ISDN line to ADSL" but
this is a two stage process, and you can simply do a "convert ISDN line
to POTS" via Eircom and then have ADSL installed on that line by
whichever DSL provider you like. And IME using any other provider will
give you a happier customer service experience.
