If you mean, will the Irish pension income be taken into account because it comes from Ireland, with regard to any benefits that you receive in the UK, then yes it will. It will not affect the amount of state pension that you get but it may affect the amount of tax that you pay and may affect any other benefits. You have to disclose it to the benefits people.
