Are you an Irish person who has left the country in the past 18 months to live abroad? Or are you someone who has moved to Ireland from another country to live here? Perhaps you are an emigrant who has returned to live in Ireland?

Whether you’ve arrived or left the country since April 2016, we want to hear your story. We would like to read about what motivated you to move; why you left; how you decided where to go; and the highs and lows of your experience so far.

Using the form below, tell us about yourself: where you are from, where you have moved to, from where and why, and your experience so far. Who did you come or go with? Are you working? How does life compare to where you were before? What are you enjoying most, and what have the challenges been?
