State pension if retiring early

    Just wondering if I retire early (still some way off, I'm in my 50s) does this affect my entitlement to the state pension at the age of 66 (as it is currently) i.e. if I retired at 60 / 61 and so stop paying PRSI at that stage, would this have any impact or could I still collect the full pension at 66 (or whatever age it is by then)?

    I have been working full time since the age of 18 with only a few weeks unemployment around the age of 20.
