I'd like the option of retiring to Ireland. I probably make the €50k requirement but come on now! Think of all the excited, motivated, genetically Irish (or maybe not) filling in the empty spots in your beautiful country.

I lived in County Kerry for 2 years ('06-'08) w/my ex-husband who has now passed away. I wish to retire in Kerry alone now. When we moved to Kerry, we had a combined pension of $24,000/yr, & it was enough to buy a house & live a simple, quiet life. Since my familial connection is my great-grandparents (from Clare), I cannot enter based on my ancestral connection. I have a great love of my ancestral home & wanted to live there for the rest of my life (I just turned 70 last week). I have both Savings & checking accounts on permanent tsb, which I have maintained there for the past 10 years. Please, please lower the retirement requirements & take into consideration my having Irish bank accounts, a condo I can sell in the U.S., & many Irish friends in counties Kerry, Clare, Galway, & Meath. I am independent, in good health, & a hard worker. God bless you.

My wife and I have been thinking about moving to ROI. However, under this rule all hope of this is dashed. My wife is a writer and I am a professional Freelance 3D modeler. While these two career earn us a decent living without being reliant on a local job, the incomes are rather unstable. Some months, we will pull in $5,000.00 USD easy while other months I have to budget for less. Under this rule, unless my modelling takes off, there is no chance of this happening. Dana and I have much to offer our local community as we are both firm believers in volunteering. I guess Eire will just have to due without us.
