    Hi, I've been living in Ireland since 2008, began working on a permanent basis in 2009 (sporadic agency work until then) and expect to reach retirement age in 2034. Full years PRSI paid from 2010 onwards
    Will i qualify for full Irish state (contributory) pension at that point?
    Lived in the UK from birth (1966) but for many and varied reasons my NI contributions were almost non-existent so I don't hold any hope of them counting towards a pension. Dtae of first employment in UK was 1977 but sketchy after that.
    Finally got my act together enough to worry about the future so any advice wecome
