Just out of curiosity how come you want to join the Guards here in Ireland as opposed to joining The Carabinieri or Polizia di Stato or even the police force in another eu country or even the US. Not wanting to be rude or anything like that I just find it kinda of odd that someone would come to Ireland in order to join our police force.
Plus, I don't know any Gardai, but I'm pretty sure that there aren't many nostalgic for Mussolini up there.

Comparing Ireland to Italy is like comparing Napoli to Trieste...everything's different.
I will never step foot on Italian soil again, as I was robbed blind there, but anyways, being your neighbor from Adriatic's east coast, I'd only say this: if you care about career & money, come to Ireland. If you care more about joy of life, stay where you are.
Good luck (& btw. I voted for you in Eurovision twice, Occidentali's Karma should have won).

Haha, I love Canzone Italiana in general, there are radio shows in Croatia that play only that & although my Italian is really bad I tend to enjoy this music very much.
I'm a Croat living in Ireland for a couple of years and I have mixed emotions about it. I love the Irish people, their free spirit, their relaxed atttitude, this beautiful green Island, awesome beaches and hills.
I don't like that traffic in the capital city is organized worse than anywhere in eastern Europe.
I get close to a nervous breakdown trying to get from one Dublin suburb to another using a public transport.
I live in a rough neigborhood where there's lots of crime & anti-social behavior and Garda (police) station is reduced and good as closed. I actually needed them once and was sent off.
Beuatiful park next to my workplace is prohibited for general public as it is in private hands, hughe ugly black fence with nasty spikes is protecting the rich and powerful from my persona sitting in the grass. Class divide in this country is appaling.
So, there's good and bads, like everywhere. But if you're from north of Italy which is one of the most developed regions of Europe and culturally painfully beautiful, I guess you can make a decent living there. If you need a change, sure, come and join us here on an emerald Isle.
