Getting started in investing in shares

I am moving to Ireland from the UK and will need to close my stocks and shares ISA that I hold with an online company called Equiniti as I will no longer be a UK resident.

I know there is no ISA equivalent in Ireland but is there a straightforward online service that I can use to buy and sell shares in Ireland. We are talking relatively small amounts of money (a few thousand euro) so no need for anything fancy.

Want to keep things as simple as possible for e.g. tax returns - I guess that using the Irish stock exchange is the best bet in that case?

Thanks.

Most people use Degiro or interactiveinvestor.ie. Neither are Irish.

The ISE is treated no differently for residents. Naturally in some countries there is stamp duty etc but not a resident issue as such.

There's no added simplicity from investing in the Irish stock exchange.

Any eurozone exchange will cut out any FX risk.
