Where are you based? Might get away with an outdoor aerial for all channels. (But most of the country won't)
Best for UK channels is satellite.
Best for Irish is aerial.
You can get some Irish channels through SaorSat but it is a different satellite from the UK stations and setup is even more complicated than using separate dish and aerial. Virgin media channels not available for free via satellite anyway.
