Moving to The Republic of Ireland in 2017/18
While we are still members of the EU, moving to The Republic of Ireland is not much different to moving from mainland UK to Northern Ireland. This is unlikely to change for many years, if at all.
As a professional removals company with many years’ experience of European and International removals, we are happy to help with any enquiries or concerns.
Many of our customers require a smaller move, that doesn’t fill even our smallest of vans. In this case, we can provide a part-load service.
A part load allows us to reduce the costs of moving, by sharing space on the removals van with other shipments. All items are individually inventoried, labelled and separated from other shipments to ensure everything is delivered to the appropriate address. All effects will be wrapped with industry approved packing materials for protection during the move to Ireland. This is a full door to door service in secure purpose built removal vehicles.
Part load removals are very popular, as the removals company can spread the transport costs and thereby help to further reduce the cost of moving.
Living in Ireland
Ireland is an island to the north-west of continental Europe. Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland , which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom, which covers the remaining area and is located in the north-east of the island.
The population of Ireland is approximately 6.4 million. Just under 4.6 million live in the Republic and just over 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland. Despite the two jurisdictions using two distinct currencies (the euro and pound sterling), a growing amount of commercial activity is carried out on an all-island basis. This has been facilitated by the two jurisdictions’ shared membership of the European Union , and there have been calls from members of the business community and policymakers for the creation of an “all-island economy” to take advantage of economies of scale and boost competitiveness.
Ireland is subdivided into four provinces: Connacht (west), Leinster (east), Munster (south), and Ulster (north). In a system that developed between the 13th and 17th centuries, Ireland has 32 traditional counties. Twenty-six of these counties are in the Republic and six are in Northern Ireland. The six counties that constitute Northern Ireland are all in the province of Ulster (which has nine counties in total). In the Republic, counties form the basis of the system of local government. Counties Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway, Waterford and Tipperary have been broken up into smaller administrative areas.
The Republic in particular has seen large-scale immigration. The 2006 census recorded that 420,000 foreign nationals, or about 10% of the population, lived in the Republic. A quarter of births (24 percent) in 2009 were to mothers born outside of Ireland.
Irish culture comprises elements of the culture of ancient immigration and influences (such as Gaelic culture ) and more recent Anglicisation and Americanisation as well as participation in a broader European culture. The culture of the island has also many features shared with Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing and golf .
