The certificates from overseas accepted as equivalent in Ireland can be checked by contacting NARIC Ireland at Quality and Qualifications Ireland http://www.qqi.ie/  who provide advice on recognition of foreign qualifications in Ireland and on the recognition of Irish qualifications abroad.

The EU has clear directives about the recognition of professional qualifications in practice. The professions falling under the directive are nurses, midwifes, doctors (general practitioners and specialists), dental practitioners, pharmacists, architects and veterinary surgeons.
