The things you want to do ONCE you are in Ireland


"the truth is that there is a lot to deal with and get through,

you have to be on your A-game from start to finish.

An international move isn't just about what you need to

ENTER the country,

it's what you need to REMAIN in the country,

and this is where the trees start piling up for paper"
