Remember in Ireland it is who you know that gets you the job....in most civilized countries it is what you know that gets you the job!!!! I've had recent experience of this,walked in off the street in London with CV in hand and had a pick of jobs within a couple of days ...because my qualifications were suited to a number of positions.Applied for a number of jobs in Ireland and was well qualified and certainly competent,yet to my dismay I was shafted by a lesser qualified individual,(all other things being equal).In small town Ireland,its who you know in this damned gombeen banana republic!
