I am considering doing the 140 online course in Dublin with a view to then teaching in Dublin privately in the evenings and weekends, in addition to my current job. I am Irish and was wondering has anyone done this before? Have you taught in language schools? Or given private lessons? Did you find it easy to get work after the course and if so how? Or do you have any recommendations? I am going to be living in the Dublin for the next year, I have always wanted to teach and think this is the best way to get a taste for it and see if I like it, while also making some extra money.
If anyone has any advise or recommendations much appriciated,

Teaching in an English speaking country nearly always requires a classroom course (CELTA or CertTESOL). You could do this one and try your luck with privates, it very much will depend on your area and connections and skills with advertising. If you do decide on this, please don't quit your day job :) Hope that's helpful, and not too discouraging!
