Are you retired in Spain, Irish, and ready to tell the world about it? RTE needs you!

Are you retired in Spain, Irish, and ready to tell the world about it? RTE needs you!

Are you one of those thousands of retired Irish people living here in Spain? We might have the perfect opportunity for you to tell the folks back home how much you are enjoying your retirement here on the Costa Blanca.

We were recently contacted by RTE regarding a documentary they are putting together for their Autumn TV Schedule titled WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT RETIREMENT.

The documentary is being fronted by well-known Irish TV Presenter Brendan Courtney. The series will examine the changing face of retirement for Irish people, both economically and socially. We are getting older as a nation and we are living longer- a good thing of course.

Thousands of people retire to Spain every year, and live very happy lives here. RTE TV are keen to look at that age-old dream of selling-up the family home in Ireland and moving to the sunny Costa Blanca.

They will do some filming here in La Zenia over the next few weeks and are looking for a retired Irish Couple who might be in the process of arranging the move. Better still we need to meet either individuals or couples who have successfully make the move to Spain and are now living that dream.

You don’t necessarily have to be a client of Comaskey in Spain but we´d like you to have some connection- Maybe you rent from us, maybe you bought your Spanish property through us (why would you buy your Spanish property from anyone else?). 

Perhaps you use one of our service providers like Alex Sanchez accountant, Pedro Molina, Barrister or of course Spanish Solutions for NIE numbers, non-resident tax, conveyancing etc. Any loose connection will do!

Do you know anyone who will fit that profile and who might be willing to share their story with Brendan and the RTE audience?

 

RTE would also be interested in interviewing anyone who is willing to discuss the practicalities of moving to Spain as an Irish retiree.

We can guarantee you much more than just 15 minutes of fame. You´ll also get an opportunity to brag to your friends back home about 320 days of sunshine, relaxed way of life, low cost of living, long walks on the soft white sand and everything you love about The Costa Blanca!!

Get in touch with Claire and we´ll arrange a chat with the producers over the next few days.
