what are the requirements to be a certified accountant in Ireland?

I want to move to ireland but I’m confuse on how to become certified as an accountant.

I’m currently pursuing a Masters in Accounting and would like to move to Ireland when I’m done. Here in the States, if you’re certified you make a lot more money as well as have more job options. is it the same in Ireland?

Here in the States you need 150 credit hour (B.S. accounting degree) 2 years hands on experience and sit for a 4 part exam. Is Ireland system set up similar to this?

    Here’s what I was able to find out (I just did the research, I have no clue otherwise):

    CPA students are required to complete a minimum of 3 years relevant supervised training. CPA training can be gained in practice, in ‘industry’ or through a combination of both.

    To register with the Institute, applicants must meet one of the following requirements:

    Path 1: Be a holder of a recognised degree, diploma, certificate or professional qualification.

    Path 2: Be a holder of a Leaving Certificate with passes in at least six subjects, three of which are Grade C or higher in three higher-level papers. Two of the six subjects must be English and Maths.

    Path 3: Be a mature student over twenty-five years of age.

    Students taking Path 1 may be entitled to certain exemptions from the CPA examinations on a subject-by-subject basis.

    Here are the contact information, hope it all works out!
