      Was the pony's name 'Shergars son' perchance? (Vet is huge in Ireland)

          Where have you been the last year? Ireland one of the countries most affected by recession and local pharmacists have trouble finding jobs. You stand no chance at all.

              Ah! That is different. You will have no trouble with residence. May still need a work permit, but suspect no problem. Initially work is available OOHs and in rural areas as in UK.
              Lloyds have several vacancies in Norfolk and Suffolk in E Anglia.

                  Re: introduce yourselves

                  Work is hard to find in all parts of Ireland, North and South, urban and rural. If you aren't registered with the PSI you already know you can't work as a pharmacist. If you do manage to get other work, e.g as a technician, it will probably be very poorly paid.

                  In Ireland personal recommendation is often important in getting work so if your wife isn't Irish you may have problems. Where ever you settle get involved in the local community, joining sports clubs etc., as that is a good way to find out about jobs that may not be advertised.

                  Your best bet may be to look for work in the pharmaceutical industry where you may be able to use your degree without being registered with the PSI. Sorry I can't be more encouraging but at the moment pharmacists are getting out of Ireland rather than coming here.

                    Saw poster today with Lloyds advertising jobs vacant in Kent, Norfolk, and Suffolk.
                    Currently they are tapping into the suplus pool of pharmacists in Northern Ireland. (article in C&D)
