Hi, my wife and I are both retired. Thinking of moving from Scotland to Ireland. We will have around £450000 funds, around £60k pensions . need to buy or rent property from this, not sure how health provision will be to we entitled to the same cover/costs as Irish citizens.. Thinking of Gallway or Donegal. What do Iwebneed to do to gain settled status. Etc.

Since you are citizens of the EU (For now until "Brexit") you can move there without any financial requirements that non-EU people must meet. You probably will have to buy some health insurance and from what I understand, if you have any health pre conditions, the companies in Ireland will not cover those for 5 years. I believe after 1 year residency you can get cheaper health insurance but the pre conditions still apply if you have any. Be aware Ireland is having a shortage of rental properties in some areas. Try renting for a time and then you can figure out where you would like to buy.

If you are a non-EEA citizen your best bet is to get on to INIS for requirements.

Muddled: They are saying they wish to move from Scotland which last I knew was in the EU. If they are citizens of Scotland, they should have no problems with INIS.
The only problem they might have is the Americans in Ireland understanding them with their "Brogue" which is even thicker than Irish. They speak English - which English ? They use some words in Scotland that even the Irish will not understand. But by in large they will get by just fine.

JoshuaK - The original poster stated they want to move from Scotland to Ireland; I didn't get an indication one way or the other that they are UK citizens. If they are, I apologise.

Someone from another EU country has to live in Ireland for one year to satisfy the Habitual Residence Condition and may be eligible for a medical card under EU regulations if they have a pension from another EU state.

IF Brexit happens, the medical card under EU regulations for UK citizens will undoubtedly go.

Hello Jack67
I moved from England to Ireland last year and as it is still part of the EU I did not really need to do anything although registering my car here was a bit of work! Health cover here is not has comprehensive as the NHS so you may need to consider private care. I used my own company to transfer funds as I work for an international payment company so worth considering using one of those as an alternative to the banks, Thanks, Derek
