Dried Yeast in Ireland

I have been thinking for a while to swith from fresh yeast to the dried one, the main reasons are

1) Fresh Yeast is kind of difficult to find in Ireland, although most Polish shop should store it nowadays
2) When you manage to find it, it does not seem fresh to me. Fresh yeast should be crumbly, while the one I can buy it is not.
3) Fresh Yeast is persishable
4) Dried and fresh yeast should give the same final result if used properly
5) Very small quantity can be measured more accurately using measuring spoons and dried yeast, rather than
     fresh yeast with a digital scale with 1gr steps.
