I visited Ireland in May 2016 for a 7-day holiday and I left the country at the end of that week.
In February 2017, I applied for a UK visa to attend a conference and I was refused; the visa officer said I didn't state the site used to convert my salary into GBP. Also, they don't believe I have enough funds for the trip, and that I would depart the UK.
I have visited almost every part of the Schengen Area, as well as visiting Mexico, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Turkey and I have never overstayed in any of these countries.
Now I want to visit Ireland again in June for a conference. I have to state on the visa application that I have been refused a UK visa. Will Ireland refuse to grant me a visa, as it shares information with the UK?
