From what I've seen, there's no such animal... Would be like Irish sour kraut...

You could try making a lager with Irish influences... Or try an Irish ale with lager yeast... No idea how that would actually come out those... If you want to use ale yeast in a lager recipe, then it's not a lager anymore...

the difference between lager and ale is the yeast and the temperature it ferments. you can try using lager yeast at higher temps or ale yeast at lower temps but not sure how that is gonna turn out.

Nottingham is a ale yeast; so you would actually be making an Irish Ale. If you are trying to make what the kit is intended to make, then I would stick with the instructions.
If you wanted to change the fermentation from a ale to a lager you will need to get a new packet of yeast and then follow the kits instructions prior to pitching.

Is it a kit?

With Ale yeast, you can't make a lager.

Never ever heard of "irish lager malt extract" before now... Typically, extracts don't care what you'll be putting them into... Unless is something like a mr. beer set... Also 2 QUARTS of corn syrup is a LOT... Maybe not in a 10 gallon batch, if you're using plenty of other ingredients, but way too much (IMO) for a 5 gallon batch.

Post up a link to where you got the kit, and/or the actual (full) recipe...

Ok, quick crash course:
As mentioned before, the only thing the determines if the beer is an Ale or Lager is the yeast that is used during fermentation. Ale yeast generally ferments at 59 F to 72 F degrees; Lager around 49 F to 60 F degrees, but some strains can go up to 70 F.
From my understanding, there is no such thing as "lager malt extract"; all extract is just extract. You would use different types depending on the style of beer: light for lagers or pale ales, amber malt for amber ales or vienna lagers, or dark malt for porters and stouts.
