Wanted: Musicians , jugglers, magicians etc – to work as Buskers – for yourself in any Irish town busking on the streets. Hours to suit you – day or evening work available. Part time or full time. Self employed – paid in cash. You sort out your own tax affairs!
It is not illegal in Ireland to busk – but if you draw a big crowd the Garda (Police) might move you on for blocking the highway or causing a disturbance. Your biggest problem might be yobs annoying you or even trying to rob you,
Begging is not even against the law in Ireland (The law was changed in 2007 to make it legal) – but even if begging was against the law – buskers would usually be seen as “providing a service” and therefore not begging.
Some busking experience would be useful – but not needed.
Outgoing characters would be best – and youe will need to posess your own instrument .
No application needed – just turn up at any busy Irish street corner and begin working.
Be careful that your takings don’t get robbed though – keep taking out cash and put it somewhere safe. (That’s if you get any) .
Pay – varies from 1 euro an hour to maybe 100 euro an hour – depends on where you are and how good you are and what you are doing or singing. Tourist towns are best – Dublin, Galway, Cork, Dingle, Killarney, Sligo, Clifden, Kenmare, Waterford, Dungarvan, Sligo, Donegal, Clonakilty etc
