Transferring salary earned abroad on returning to India

On 1st September 2016, I left India and came to Ireland to pursue my masters. As part of teaching assistant job, I got paid some money into a local Irish bank account. In May 2017, I joined an internship here, for which I got paid monthly salary into the local Irish bank account. However, now I am planning to return to India permanently. I’ll reach back on 1st September 2017. I have a normal savings account (neither NRO nor NRE) in HDFC bank. If I transfer money from my Irish account to that account in India, will it be taxable? I have already paid taxes to the Irish government. What’s the right thing to do here? Also, my parents had sponsored my tuition and living by loading money to an indian forex card. I used that to pay off deposits for my accommodation here, however, I’ve gotten the deposit back in my Irish bank account as well. How can I show that this money is not income? I have payslips for all my earnings.

India do have DTAA ( Double taxation Avoidance agreement) with Ireland. Need to check first the residential status as you have left the country on education VISA.  Any how there wont be double taxation as you can get rebate for the taxes paid in ireland here
