Sister moving to UK to work at age 59 - implications for State pension, benefits, tax etc

    My sister was offered a lecturing job in UK - a permanent job - she likes lecturing and has done a small amount here but can't seem to break into it full time. She worked as manager in health care for last 15 years but hates it. She doesn't have much private pension - 180k in pot to date. She is widowed with grown up children who live abroad, will moving to UK affect her Irish State pension. She has 1050 contributions to date. She worked in UK about 30 years ago and has made voluntary contributions to her pension there and now has 22 years UK State pension. What about illness benefit - She worries now if she were to get ill, would she be entitled to this in UK based on Irish contributions - is there a reciprocal agreement? She rents out a room in her house here but knows thus will now be taxed. What are the implications for inheritance tax for her children if she was to move to the UK. These are some of the questions she has before finally committing to the move,
