This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Living in Ireland?

Not sure which university, but I'm almost certain it is in Dublin.
Hmmm.
I'm in Galway, which is the far side of the country, and I don't really spend that much time in Dublin - I know my way around the city centre, but that's about it really.

You could dry PMing Demented_Elf or Araquael on RPG.net - Araquael is in Canada ATM (I think), but iirc he went to uni in Dublin, and Demented_Elf is in Dublin at the mo. There are a couple of other Irish posters over at TBP as well.

As far as tips:
If your friend is going to DCU or UCD, both have some on-campus accommodation, and they usually reserve some space for foreign students. It's worth contacting the Uni administration about that kind of thing. It's probably not cheap, unfortunately, but nothing in Dublin is...
:(

Housing has already been arranged. I'm trying find information about day to day living. Stuff like where to shop for groceries, areas to avoid, average meal prices, public transportation, etc.

I see.
I'm afraid I really don't know enough about Dublin to help out much.
Probably worth PMing the two guys at TBP, though.
(And it's DementedElf, not Demented_Elf. Don't know where I got the underscore from.)

How's the immigration policy in Ireland?  And how's the economy in the Cork area?

I'm always keeping an ear to the ground about the ancestral homelands, as there's a part of me that's always keeping tabs on where I could bail to when this country finally hits the pot, or I finally get the money to do it sooner than that.

Thanks to a special exception, it looks like I could qualify for a permit as a chef, but I'd have to find a position worth 30,000 EUR or more, which seems like it would be rather difficult . . .
