    George. This may not be the place to ask you or your readers the following, but I am nearly at breaking point with the Irish Government offices here and in Ireland there absolutely hopeless. I send an email to infoline@hse.ie a week ago. This same email was giving to me by the Irish Embassy in Sydney. I wanted to know and this is requested by one of our Irish expats who has lived in Australia for 47 years and now deciding to return to Ireland to retire. She is not Australian Naturalized but was born in Ireland. Can she use her Medicare card in Ireland or does she have to take out private health cover. George I get so many missunderstandings on this subject (returning to retire in Ireland) I feel she does have to take out private cover, but I wanted to make sure for her. Now the fun part!

    Email received today 3/07/2012. Quote: “I will be out of the office starting 12/10/2011 and will not return until 31/12/2017” (note the year!!) “Queries to this address will not be answered. All enquiries to the National Health Information Line 1850 24 1850 or Email: info@hse.ie” the same email address I send my email to in the first place. George one wonders why the Irish tax payer has to send so much of there hard earned money to these Embassies and Associations. Here they are not very well informed about Ireland at all. Did you know if one wants to renew an English Passport they have to apply to New Zealand. I am trying to sort that one out for an elderly Gent 87 years old and so confused with all this and of course the poor man is not on computer.
    I have been in touch with London so lets hope I get help for him from there. George if you or any of your readers can help me with this Irish matter that would be absolutely great.
    Thank you once again George.
    Katie.
