I have moved from Spain to Ireland, but I can´t change my address (and therefore card) to Ireland. I can only change address within the same country. Do I have to close my Paypal account and start again? I have it linked to so many apps that seems ridiculous

Paypal is country specific so if you move countries you have to open another paypal account in the country you reside in and add an address / phone number / bank accounts / cards from within that country.

You should really withdraw any funds / resolve issues / remove cards and bank accounts / cancel any subscriptions and close the old Paypal account before you move countries. If you don't then you may have problems doing so once you have moved and may need to contact customer services for help to resolve things.
