Thankyou so much for the information, I have found it very usefull, we have been visiting in the school holidays and plan to do that this year at every chance we get, but as we cant actually test out the schools its reasuring to here others have mixed in fine, my husband is hopeful he will be able to adapt his company to work mostly online, so hopefully work may not be as big a problem. |
: Hi Rona,
: You're asking a lot of very specific
: Monaghan information which I don't
: personally have. You might check out the
: Monaghan town site at
: http://www.monaghantown.ie . I always advise
: visiting for a vacation period of two or
: three weeks to see for yourself what life is
: like in reality. The kind of information
: you're seeking can only be found on the
: Most driver instruction companies are small,
: local, personal businesses. It may be that
: your husband will have to set up his own
: business to actually find work. This is
: difficult in smallish towns like Monaghan
: since someone gets a reputation and then
: people go to that person by word of mouth.
: Many of the driving instructors have
: arrangements with the local high schools to
: teach Transition Year students for free, and
: that's how they get known. You should check
: out to see if there are jobs on offer at the
: two biggest job sites - www.fas.ie and
: Finding work is difficult, to say the least.
: There's a reason nearly 100,000 Irish people
: emigrated last year. They couldn't find work
: here in Ireland.
: You'll probably find a lot less racial
: discrimination and bullying in small town
: and rural Ireland than in larger cities,
: both here and in the UK. My wife, a teacher,
: has seen no signs of such in her school
: (admittedly an all girls school) and the
: asian, indian, east european and african
: students have integrated with no special
: problems other than mastering the language.
: That, obviously, won't be a problem for your
: Best of luck,

: Hi My husband and 4 kids are planning to
: to ireland next summer, we currently live in
: London, with not a very good standard of
: living, and simply just want a nicer home
: and a safer enviroment to raise the kids.
: can anyone tell be how good or bad the job
: market is im a driving instructor, ive read
: alot that business in ROI is very slow but
: as we plan to move close to the border im
: thinking of crossing over to teach, are
: things much better in the north for this
: we plan to move to monahgan area. My
: Husband works in publishing so any feedback
: on that industry would be great. We have
: always found ireland so friendly when we
: visit but can anyone tell me what is the
: ethnic mix in this area, my husband has
: irish passport im jamaican decent will the
: schools be ok? or is there a risk of
: bullying with the kids, not that london is
: much better, any advice would be brillant.
: Sorry for the long message!
