I often receive e-mails from readers asking me for tips about moving to Ireland. Finding a trusted, thorough, and well researched resource was not easy, well not until now. The Ireland Move Club has been specially designed to help answer the questions that arise along the way, when planning a move to Ireland.
Liam, the creator of an Irish website called Got Ireland, recently made the move back to his hometown of Cork from California. Along the way he learned much about the ups and downs of moving a family half way round the world.
I was delighted to hear Liam has started this new online venture, to share his knowledge, and first-hand information gained through his journey. And so over to Liam ….
Before I start I’d like to say thank you to Mairéad for giving me the opportunity to submit a guest post on Irish American Mom. Like many of you, I have been a longtime fan of Mairéad’s blog, and have watched it grow into an incredible Irish cultural resource over the last few years.
Mairéad has been kind enough to let me tell you a little bit about my brand new website – The Ireland Move Club. I like to describe the Ireland Move Club as a social community for movers to Ireland.
It’s a place where those of you planning on moving to Ireland (and those of you just dreaming about it) can come to meet, share stories, experiences, knowledge and more. You can participate purely as an observer, or you can seek out advice and information which will help you plan your move.
For those of you who live in Ireland, or those who have moved here, you can get involved and help others out with information you might have that they need. Similar to other online communities, you can create your own profile, send messages, make friends, participate in interest groups, and even have a little fun along the way.
Aside from the community aspect of the website, I’ve been busying myself creating practical international moving advice which I’m sharing in the form of blog posts on the site. My goal is to build up a repository of first-hand information that can help others facing similar logistical issues with moving to, and settling in, Ireland.
If you’d like to find out more, become involved, offer some useful advice, or simply just do a little browsing around, I invite you over to The Ireland Move Club.
Wishing Liam every success with his new life back home in Ireland, and I hope the Ireland Move Club will grow into a vibrant, active website where community members help and encourage each other as they plan new beginnings in Ireland.
