Selling Everything You Own and Moving to Ireland (Ep. 15) [Re-run]

Selling everything you own and moving to Ireland

Immigration played an important role in the history of Ireland, and it still does. Everything started with an exodus when Irishmen started seeking a better life and left Ireland for the United States. Centuries have passed and things have changed. While there still are Irish who move across the Atlantic Ocean or to other parts of the World, there is a new trend – people moving to Ireland.

2016 was the year when for the first time more people were migrating into Ireland than leaving. Would you do that? Move to Ireland?

Well, until you think about it, let’s hear the story of Brian Casey – Briain Ó Casathaigh. He sold everything he owned and moved to Ireland in 2013 after visiting the country for the first time in 2012.

In this rebroadcast of the 15th Bitesize Irish Gaelic Podcast episode you can learn about the steps you need to take if you want to contact those who have already moved to Ireland before you, and how to learn Irish before and after getting to Ireland.

The re-run of the Bitesize Irish Gaelic Podcast – 15th episode is in the English language.
