    9 Strange Facts About Ireland

    1. My Funny Valentine
      Ireland might be known for its sense of humour, but it’s also widely romantic, not just the rolling landscape, music and poetry. St Valentin is buried in Whitefriar Street Church in Dublin. Originally poor old Valentine was executed in Rome and his body kept at the Basilica of Santa Maria. But in the 16th century his remains were gifted to Father Spratt by Pope Gregory XVI… Well, some of them were, his skull remains on display adorned with flowers in Italy and most of the rest of him went to Madrid… So maybe, not so romantic after all.
    2. Not Irish
      St Patrick wasn’t Irish. And he wasn’t called Patrick. Born Maewyn Succat, he was a Welshman, kidnapped by Irish raiders ad forced into slavery. But he took his religion with him and is believed to have responsible for taking Christianity to Ireland. He never drove all the snakes from Ireland as there have never been any snake species there. While today his saint’s day is one of the biggest global parties, pubs were actually banned from opening on March 17th right up until 1970.
    3. Liffey Water
      More Guinness is sold in Africa than Ireland. It’s so popular there that there are three breweries on the continent to keep Africans refreshed. But per capita it’s actually the UK the tops the charts for drinking the most pints of what is often locally known as ‘the Liffey water’, as the original brewery sits on the banks of the River Liffey.
    4. Dracula O’Donnelly
      The terrifying tale of Dracula, written by Irishman Bram Stoker, was partly based on local legends of a creature known as ‘Abhartach’, an old Gaelic vampire myth.
    5. The Goat King
      The village of Killorglin hosts the Puck Fair every year and chief among the events is a ceremony where a goat is crowned King for three days. We’re not kidding! (we’ll see ourselves out).
    6. Ginger Is Beautiful
      The flame red hair image of Ireland isn’t exaggerated. Just under 10% of the population is ginger. A higher proportion than any other country worldwide. The UK percentage of redheads is also higher than average.
    7. See Ya Later!
      In recent studies, over 17% of Irish people will live abroad at some point in their life. That’s 1 out of every 6 adults.
    8. Fairy Dust
      In 1999 the M18 motorway was delayed, rerouted and opened 10 years later than scheduled to protect a tree belonging to fairies. No, we haven’t been at the Guinness, it’s a true story. National protests and campaigns raised awareness for the plight of the tree and its little inhabitants and eventually planners had to bend to the will of the people, which was fairy ‘nuff (honestly, we promise to stop now!).
    9. Doh!
      The Irish Government was held to account by the European Economic Community and rapped on the knuckles for inequality in the workplace. The Irish Parliament immediately set about righting their wrong and created a new role for an Equal Pay Enforcement Officer. The job was advertised offering different salaries for men and women. Doh!

    Moving to Ireland – More Information

    Due to an agreement between the UK and Irish governments, UK citizens do not need a visa or work permit to live and work in Ireland.

    In Ireland they drive on the left, the same as the UK. It is a fairly easy procedure to import your car to Ireland if you are staying long term. It will have to undergo an inspection (similar to an MOT) and be registered in Ireland with Irish plates. You may be required to pay VAT.

    If you’re moving to Ireland it’s worth noting that on average, rental prices are slightly higher than the UK. However, if you’re buying property, Irish prices are lower (per metre²).
