If you're so happy with this place please tell me why?
Cant speak for Canada, but wages are definitely lower in NZ than they are in Ireland, and cost of living is much higher in NZ
Plus, renting here is crazy expensive
this is your average urban rental rental https://www.realestate.co.nz/4017958...scentgrey-lynn

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone claim Ireland is overcrowded.

One thing is sure I'll be part of this new generation that will be on a plane out of this sh1thole as soon as things settle.
Even this early into the thread I think it's clear that you will be worse off if you go to New Zealand.

To the point I was making - stay away from the well worn path of capital cities and well known destinations. There are loads of 3rd/4th tier cities in emerging nations that provide excellent standard of living. With Western wages from remote working or freelancing you can live like a king in these smaller cities so you won’t have to worry about overcrowding.

Because there's fairly strict visa requirements for both Canada and NZ,you're most likely nearing 30 or older than that now.
It's much harder to get a visa after 30.
I also get the feeling you'd still be moaning and calling the place a kip.

Go to the thread which is about our population reaching 5 million probably later this year. The first response was that it is 2 million too many.

I'm in the process of moving back to the UK because for all its faults at least over there I am able to get on with my life. UK has basically committed to opening up fully next month, whereas the Ireland is talking about extending lockdown powers until November..

To be honest, I'm in the UK 8 years and it's a great country. Brexit isn't an issue. The cost of living is much lower than Ireland . Outside of London and certain parts of the big cities or wealthy south Eastern counties house prices are good. Its a great place. I come from a FG conservative background and I vote conservative here as does my wife who's European. You can talk about NZ or Oz and they are both good countries. Id move to any English-speaking country really.
