Hey, I am going to Ireland. I need to check-in everyday. I have a cell phone I bought in England last year. Does anyone know if I need to buy a new Sim card for Ireland, or will the England one work? If I need a new card, can I buy it at Airport? Thanks

No, if you use the British one you'll be charged roaming rates in the Republic of Ireland.

If you're in Northern Ireland, you'd be fine as that's part of the UK.

You should be able to pick up a local sim at the airport or failing that at a supermarket, newsagent or convenience store.
