Is it easy/hard for international students to get a job in Dublin, Ireland?
As in any job market, your ability to find a job would depend on your degree, work experience and additional skills you can offer your prospective employer. If you present yourself well and have more than the rest of the candidates, you will get the position. If you need a work permit, it's very difficult to get it because the rules are very strict, but if you don't, then nothing is stopping you from getting in. Competition is normally fair. A word of warning, however - Ireland is a very "interesting" place and while all the right noises are made about equal opportunities and rights, it is unlikely you are ever going to feel at home if you are in any way different from an average Irish person. It is all very subtle, but chances are you're going to work [much] longer hours for [a lot] lower salary and get no support if you ever need it. This is based on my experience of working in the local financial services industry. I have also spoken to a number of expats working in Dublin who appear to have had similar experiences.If you allow a suggestion, London and the UK in general has a more vibrant and tolerant society. Again, from personal experience, the people are a lot easier to get in contact with, they are a lot more open and friendly. Finding a job in the UK is also likely to be easier simply because the market is larger.
Is there a national or international french horn day, or a trombone day or flute day?
Each instrument has a professional *society* or organization. They usually have a convention every year. Those often move around the US - and there are international groups, too. Most of those societies have one day where all the participants combine to play in one huge work (beyond all the separate performances held during the convention.) I participated in the world's largest (yup - Guinness record holder) flute quartet several years ago, when the convention was in NYC. We played in the Marriott ballroom and performed a quartet arranged from the favorites of Sir James Galway, who r directed the group. There were over 2,000 of us! each year TUBA (the Tubists' United Brotherhood Association) hold a Tuba Christmas on the ice at Rockfeller Center - they show up with whatever they play, and do Christmas carols. This even has been replicated in other places, too - we have one here upstate - and they also meet on a ranch in AZ. So - is there and official *day* for each instrument - nah - we spread it out for a WEEK each, in c some cases!
Where is the Electronic Arts Center located exactly in Galway, Ireland?
As far as I can gather from a very useful thread (the overall forum might be useful too!) on boards.ie, the Bioware complex is in Parkmore on the East side of Galway city, near the racecourse http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthrea... http://www.advertiser.ie/galway/article/... http://www.galwaytransport.info/2010/02/... I understand when EA/Bioware first located it was in a temp home in Mervue

Between UCD and Trinity College Dublin, which university should I choose? How do they compare by subject, student life and international opportunities?
Honestly, all the Irish universities are as good as each other in terms of education. No Irish employer is going to favour someone from Trinity or UCD or anywhere for that matter on the sole reason that they went to that particular college. Ireland is not that the US or the UK where there are so many universities that inequalities in education are bound to exist. All Irish universities are funded by the government, and are funded according to their needs. This means that it is very difficult for one Irish university to really “race ahead” of another Irish university. An example of this is the political system that Ireland has. In the UK or the US, the top political leaders come from Oxford and Harvard. In Ireland, that is not the case.Having said that, Trinity College is better known around the world than all the other Irish universities, so in that respect, yes, Trinity would be better for an international student. That said, a lot of it does depend on the course/programme studied, and for practical subjects like engineering, UCD might be better. (The engineering facilities in UCD are by far the best in the country).At the end of the day it all comes down to the individual, and where they see themselves happiest. I know a lot of people who were miserable in Trinity and a lot of people who absolutely loved other colleges, so think that international reputation is the be all and end all! :D
