    Irish Life:
    They choose the stocks/fund for you
    Charge you for the work involved (about 2% of each lodgement and .75% on the pot each year)
    Higher tax rate on earnings (41% v 33% on gains)

    DIY:
    Opposite of above.
    Main point being that you need to put in the effort of picking the stocks yourself
