MJ, why not ask around any of the gliding clubs to see if they need tug pilots ( provided a CPL isn't required ) or any of the parachuting firms. Could also be worth your while having a chat to training schools that have to fly places for maintenance.
Asking is the only way.
Best of luck.
Well its gonna be difficult to get anyone to hand you an aircraft to position for one reason or another unless they know you well.
If its hours you want your just going to have to join a club or rent off a school. Some have a good number of pilots with whom you can go fly together and stagger legs to go to further places, but of course its a your financial cost. The people who might want a safety pilot would be post PPL course also just like you so unless you have plenty of experience safety pilot work would not be viable.....in its true sense of the word anyway. Paradrop/glider-banner tow is generally the domain of CPL holders looking to build hours etc etc so thats a slim chance.
Is it just that you want to be in the air all the time or build hours??
Just get involved in your chosen club or school and the odd position flight might occur but rarely, But you probably get more luck meeting others and sharing the cost of a trip somewhere in a rental.
All the best
I believe the Irish Parachute Club in Clonbulloge still uses PPL's. Not sure how they get away with it. But there will be a queue there too, not to mention CPL's with lots of hours.
Make friends, it's always the best way in Ireland.

It's legal to fly for them with a PPL as it's a 'not for profit' organisation and your not getting paid for it, only downside was you needed around 150 or 200 hours before they'll let you near the plane.
Sure what's the worst that could happen, everyone has a parachute and they intend on jumping out anyway!!!!
