This section will introduce you to a little of the history of Ireland so that you will be better able to appreciate their culture and understand why they behave the way they do. We will also cover the expected level of technology in this country.
Ireland has been invaded many times throughout its history. Because of this, the Irish have adopted a very close knit outlook on doing business. It can best be summed up as: family first, Irish second, and foreigners last. This means that the Irish will only want to business with people they trust and because of that, we will have a difficult time getting started. That being said, once we do start doing business and continue to offer good products, we will get many recommendations from our clients so our business will grow fast.
Ireland has a level of technology similar to ours. Expect to see people with cell phones and laptops. You will need to be aware of the outlets in Ireland though. The outlets have a different socket design, so you will need an adapter in order to plug into the outlets. Outlets in Ireland also operate between 220-240 Volts compared to our usual 110-120 Volts. Most advance electronics like laptops and cell phones can use variable voltages, but things like blow-dryers cannot. If you electronic device isn't designed to use multiple voltages you will need to buy a transformer for the device so you do not destroy it. The best case situation if you do not use a transformer is that the device is destroyed without harming you. The worst cast situation is that you will die from using it.
