There comes a time, in your mid-to-late forties that the concept of retirement moves from a distant pipe-dream to something that potentially might happen.
At the moment the official retirement age in Ireland for anyone born in 1961 or later is 68 years old.
At the time of writing this I’m 46 years old, and have been working full time since I graduated university at age 22 – and so I’ve been working 24 years. And if I retire at 68, then I have just over 21 years to go – so I’m over half way there!
So, for a bit of fun, I’ve added a countdown timer to visualise my time to retirement:
At the moment I’m not sure if I’m happy or depressed that I have over 20 years to go.
